- Curator's comments
- This sterling silver flower vase was made for the Royal Academy Exhibition of British Art in Industry shown at Burlington House in 1935. See 'British Art in Industry 1935. Illustrated Souvenir', London 1935, p. 34. It was one of a number of modern designs by different artists created specially for the exhibition and promoted in a booklet produced by the firm, entitled 'Some beautiful applications of British Industrial Designing by the House of Mappin & Webb'. This vase is illustrated as model number 824, costing £6 15s 0d. Through the booklet Mappin & Webb informed its customers that all the specimens exhibited would be for sale at the close of the exhibition and that in the meantime, 'precisely similar' examples could be obtained from the firm's three London branches or from its manufactory in Sheffield.
