Bruno Schoder's Prime Warden's Commission 2005
This large ceremonial salt was made for the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths. Each year the new Prime Warden of the Company commissions a major piece, and this is Bruno Schroder's choice.
The unicorns and leopard are taken from the Goldsmiths' Company’s coat of arms, and the dragons are representative of the City of London. The animals were modelled in wax and cast. There is engraving around the foot of the salt.
Athenaeum Ceremonial Salt
This large centrepiece was made for the Athenaeum club to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee.
It shows Athena striding off to battle with her spear and shield, her serpent following her. She is the goddess of the stormy night sky, and this is shown in enamel above her.
Athena's owl perches on the sphere on top of the salt. There is another owl, wings folded, on the end of the salt spoon.
The piece is made of silver, partly gilded, enamel, glass and white marble. There is engraving round the top edge.
This piece now lives in a splendid showcase designed and made by Lord Linley.
