From our Decanter collection, we are delighted to offer this pair of Art Deco Decanters. The decanters with beautiful Art Deco design having shaped lines with thick tapered bodies and grooved crystal glass.

The Decanters hallmarked to the collars Birmingham, Aide Brothers Dated 1936 and the other Walker & Hall, Dated 1938. The pair likely to have been retailed together from a central shop with the silver from different silversmiths.
Adie Brothers were Birmingham based silversmiths located on Frederick Street in 1902. They later became Adie Brothers Ltd and registered new hallmarks in 1922. Best known for making vanity cases alongside a wide range of silver serving items. In the late 1960s Aide Brothers Ltd became part of British Silverware, which closed in 1968.
Walker and Hall was established by George Walker in Sheffield in 1845. As an Assistant to Dr. John Wright, who had conducted important experiments on electroplating methods, Walker secured the Royalty of electroplating for Sheffield. In 1853 the business was joined by Henry Hall and became ‘Walker & Hall’.
Art Deco was a style of visual arts, architecture, and product design that first appeared in France in the 1910s. It flourished in the United States and Europe during the 1920s to early 1930s. It was hugely prevalent through styling and design of the exterior and interior of anything from large structures to small objects and even influenced fashion and jewellery. Art Deco has influenced bridges, buildings, ships, ocean liners, trains, cars, trucks, buses, furniture, and everyday objects like radios and vacuum cleaners. It has become extremely popular today and is highly desirable to collectors and trendsetters in the fashion industry.
Sterling Silver is an alloy composed by weight of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness (parts per thousand) of 925.
