Garrard & Co.
A very stylish, Modernist style Sterling silver pitcher and goblet set designed for Garrard by Alex George Styles in collaboration with John Churchill in 1974, as part of the Churchill Centenary Collection created to commemorate the centennial of Churchill’s birth on 30 November, 1874.
In apparently unused and original condition, the tall gilt-lined pitcher features the engraved Churchill Coat-of-Arms, and to each of the cylindrical goblets, various key scenes from Churchill’s life are engraved, including the views of Blenheim Palace and Churchill as a Knight of the Garter in his ceremonial dress. Only 100 of these commemorative sets were made, this being numbered 47 of 100. Bearing maker’s marks and hallmarks for 1974, and complete with original presentation case.
Height of pitcher: 10½ inches (27 cm).
