A quite wonderful early nineteenth century serving tray, a great size and a great shape making it a very usable piece for drinks or hors d’oeuvre.
The shaped raised border is stunning with floral and foliate motifs, the tray itself with a most attractive engraved decoration. Unmarked, which is normal for an early example such as this.
Frank Miles was born in 1946 in Zimbabwe and spent his early life as a child of the bushveld. A lifelong intimacy with nature is captured in all his wildlife sculptures and it is that which gives them such a presence in private, public and corporate collections worldwide.
After graduating with a B.Sc(Hons), majoring in Botany and Zoology, Frank travelled extensively in Africa, Europe and America.
Upon his return to Africa and the bushveld he so loved, his artistic talents matured into the creation of superb bronze sculptures of African wildlife and people. Frank made a wide study of various methods of bronze casting and finally formulated the unique process which, combined with his inspired talent, distinguishes his work.

Here we have a wonderful lamp, made in the earlier part of the 1900’s that fell into that famous Edwardian period. This particular lamp is very unusual as it extends, and has a wonderful symmetrical design and just wonderfully crafted out of a nice tone of brass and chrome . Such a great design.
