Notes Design for Silverware competition at the Goldsmiths' Hall. Lethaby entered the competition three years running (1882-84). This is part of his 1883 entry which won him a £35 prize (£20 improvement on his prize the year before), the year in which he used the pseudonym "Pegasus".
Object Notes A sheet of details sketches (see inscriptions) for both the Ewer and the dish which made up Lethaby's 1883 entry into the competition. The influence of 16th century Anglo-Flemish traditions is again apparent. Signed with the Pegasus pseudonym.
