Although this is a matched set it is interesting to note that Alwyn Carr was still producing silver to the same designs as in his partnership with Omar Ramsden that was dissolved in 1919. This "Standard Rose" design was popular with the partnership's clientele and works particularly well in this condiment set.. It also shows that Carr was still capable of procucing beautiful silver many years after the 1919 separation.
