Rare Braemar Fork, William W. Randall





Details

William W. Randall was the son-in-law of William Robb, the most famous silversmith and originator of Ballater silver. With Balmoral Castle equidistant from Ballater and Braemar, it was natural for Robb to set up shop in both towns and thus ensure a steady stream of tourist clients for Robb and his successors. Wm Randall took over the Braemar shop in the early 1930's, however silver marked with the W.W.R mark is especially scarce and other than the occasional kilt pin rarely appears on the market. The Citrine to the terminal of this pickle or olive fork is typical of the Scottish themed silver sold from the shops. The fork is clearly marked with Edinburgh hallmarks the "B.M.R" mark for Braemar and Randall's maker's mark. A fine fork and a particularly rare of Scottish provincial silver.

 

Few pieces of Randall or indeed Braemar marked silver exist: a 1937 WWR napkin ring with citrine sold at Lyon & Turnbull in August 2009 for £750. Two kilt pins sold in the same sale with Wm Robb Braemar marks and made £938 and £1250.
