60s Christmas servers

made in Melbourne, Australia 1960s

These servers have never been out of their crimson satin lined box: a must for every Christmas-believer.

Stuart Devlin specialised in gold and silversmithing and went on to design the first decimal coinage for Australia in 1964. All his work is now highly regarded.

‘Damascene’ relates to the City of Damascus, the story in the Bible where an ‘important moment of insight’ occurred- ie: on the Road to Damascus. Stuart Devlin designed the salad servers in the mid 60s- they are silver plate and now highly sought after [especially in the original box.]

This boxed set is now for sale: $AUD65
