Other enthusiasms catered for were the Arts and Crafts movement in the form of a 5in (12.5cm) hammered silver bowl, and railway buffs in the form of a GWR clock. The 7oz, London 1922 bowl, designed by SD (probably Sylvia Dunlop) with Celtic bands and inset with mauve stones, made £1600. The 2ft 4in (71cm) tall railway clock with fusée movement and inscribed GWR to the dial and a plaque, made £1300.
