"Covered Cup, Paul Storr"

Thelma Shoneman selected the Covered Cup because of her fascination with symbolism of fruits, flowers and foliages in all forms of art. This magnificent gilded-silver piece from the Victorian Era seemed filled with symbolic expression. By creating an arrangement of predominantly silver-green foliages, flowers with romantic symbolism and garlands intertwining, she hoped to capture the feeling of the silversmith's message from Godmother to Godchild.
Laura Lindop's design interprets Venus.
