Silver belles: E&Co’s cocktail contrivances
2 November 2016
Historical silversmith Elkington & Co, founded in 1824, has recently relaunched as E&Co under the creative direction of Christopher Jenner, who devised a range, including a minimal cocktail set, that takes the company’s savoir-faire and gives it a modern spin. Also giving new forms to barware is the ‘Oh’ collection by Christofle, which is based on a simple, round-shaped motif and cast in bold shapes.
