Saunders & Shepherd

A fine, 1931 Sterling silver model of the Supermarine S6b Schneider Trophy-winning seaplane, made by English silversmiths Saunders & Shepherd, perhaps better known for their creation of the elements of the Rolls-Royce desk set. This model is well detailed with an articulated rudder, elevators, ailerons and a rotating propeller and mounted on a black ebonized presentation base. Fully hallmarked with maker’s marks and date marks for 1931.

Wingspan: 7 inches (18½ cm)

The Supermarine S5, S6 and S6b Seaplanes won the Schneider Trophy outright, following its victories in 1927, 1929 and 1931. Chief designer R J Mitchell went on to design the Supermarine Spitfire, an evolution of the S6b.
