Silver Salad Servers
A pair of contemporary handmade hallmarked sterling silver salad servers which will enhance your dining experience and impress your family and friends. An essential accessory from the luxury JA Campbell 'Appetite' collection. A contemporary sterling silver based salad bowl adds a matching and finishing touch.
The 'Appetite' collection was conceived some 35 years ago and my family and I have enjoyed countless hours sat around the dining table, enjoying food, wine, the ambiance and our own company with just a few pieces from the 'appetite' collection. It is always a pleasure to look at and use. Silver has become somewhat of a subtle status symbol in recent years, now could be the time to spoil yourself and buy some. The occasional wash and polish, which is all silver really needs, is in itself a pleasure, building that touchy feely relationship with your silver. The perfect silver present for any occasion, these sterling silver salad servers are suitable to be engraved.
For those interested in how we make this serious pair of salad servers a brief description follows. Each server has 5 components, all made from sheet silver. The handles are in 2 halves plus an end plate, bowl and back plate. Sheet silver is supplied to us by Cookson Precious Metal and then a template is placed on the sheet and drawn around, the handle halves are cut out of this. They are placed into a male and female die and struck to form the handles. These have the edges linished flat, and they are fluxed, bound together and soldered using hard silver solder. When they have cooled they are immersed in 'pickle' dilute sulphuric acid to remove flux and oxide. Following that, the blade templates are laid on thick silver sheet, drawn around and cut out. They are then domed to form a bowl shape and soldered onto the handle. Next the end cap is soldered onto the handle end and 2 decorative lines cut into the surface.
At this stage in the making the item is punched with the makers mark, JAC in a triangle, the initials of John Campbell. It is then sent to the London Assay Office for testing of each and every component. Only if all the components prove to be better than 92.5% are the remaining hallmarks punched into the surface while being supported on a steel stake. The English hallmarking system is one of the oldest and best forms of consumer protection and dates back to the 1400s.
When they arrive back from the hall marking process the JA Campbell name punch is applied. They then pass to the polishing shop where Colin and his team using 3 different grades of compound, polish them to the brightness associated with silver. They are then ultrasonically cleaned, rinsed, inspected and packed into fitted presentation boxes for stocking or dispatch.
Other items which would further enhance your table are the sterling silver oil & vinegar cruet or the salt & pepper mill cruet and a pair of sterling silver candlesticks from the same collection. These are just a few suggestions for the discerning fine diner.
