Duchess of Sutherland Cripples Guild ash trays
A pair of small silver plated ash trays/pin dishes made by the Duchess of Sutherland Cripples Guild, circa 1910.
Both ash trays are identical and have a very attractive repousse design plus the makers marks for the D.S.C.G.
The ash tray is shown in the 1910 showroom catalogue (No.334) where it is described as a design adapted from an Italian seventeenth century model lent by John Sargent Esq., R.A. This is almost certainly the famous society portrait painter, John Singer Sargent. Millicent was painted by Sargent in 1904, link below:
Dimensions: Just under 4″ in diameter by 1″ high
