Hart and Huyshe brass bowl
A hand hammered brass bowl with wirework edge by Hart & Huyshe, Chipping Campden, circa 1920.
The bowl is made using quite a heavy gauge of brass. It is very much in the Cotswold style and was made during a short lived venture between former Guild of Handicraft member, George Hart, and his half brother Reynell Huyshe. The bowl would have been made at the former Guild of Handicraft workshops which remain open to this day (Harts Silversmiths) in Chipping Campden.
An identical design in copper can be found in the collection of the Wilson Museum in Cheltenham which houses a very good collection of Cotswold Arts & Crafts movement items. The bowl is also illustrated in the book, Simplicity or Splendour, Arts and Crafts Living: Objects from the Cheltenham Collections, Edited by Annette Carruthers and Mary Greenstead, Fig 105, Cat 198.
Dimensions: 10 1/2″ in diameter and 2 1/2″ high
