William Hutton & Sons, Ltd. Silver and Enamel Dish
This silver and enamel catchall by William Hutton & Sons, Ltd. is an oblong shallow dish that demonstrates the Art Nouveau affinity for balanced asymmetry within a composition, as one end of the dish expresses more weight than the other, allowing for a natural reading of “top” and “bottom.” The visual head of the piece includes an elegantly restrained example of the sinuous lines that define the Art Nouveau movement, while the extended end of the piece offers larger swathes of enamel, in which we can see the mastery of the technique applied.
