WILLIAM MORRIS CARMICHAEL (Canadian 1894-1954)
PAIR OF STERLING SCALLOPED DISHES
A pair of unusual and rare sterling silver scalloped dishes with fluted edge, stamped with Carmichael's early hallmark 'WMC' and 'sterling'.
Born in Victoria, British Columbia in 1894, William Morris Carmichael received most of his training in England. His father opened their first store in 1927 on Government Street and two years later they moved to Fort Street where they remained.
In 1935 Carmichael was commissioned to design and make a Thunderbird bowl for King George V and Queen Mary. For years Carmichael was the only silversmith west of Toronto. His sterling silver pieces are rare and highly sought after by collectors, and his work can be seen in both the Victoria and Vancouver museums.
