In 1900, Lady Millicent St.Clair-Erskine, Duchess of Sutherland began a guild for crippled children in Stoke-on-Trent to learn a craft and produce metalware in the arts & crafts style. This became the Duchess of Sutherland Cripples Guild and silverware produced by the guild bears both the "MS" maker's mark of the Duchess as well as the much sought after D.S.C.G surmounted by a ducal coronet stamp which can be found to the underside of this piece.
This silver quaich-style bowl has a lovely simple, spot-hammered form with two side handles. It has a pleasing feel in the hand and remains in excellent condition.
