Arthur Court Silver Replaces Original Silver
Arthur Court Designs pioneered the use of alternative metal for silver in silver ware and decorative items. The highly polished aluminum items had a brilliant luster that resembled polished silver.
Arthur Court silver does not need the frequent polishing needed by original silver that got tarnished easily. Cook and serve ware, and decorative items, made with the alternative metal began to replace silver ware of an earlier age. Silver ware was a symbol of prosperity and taste in that age.
Arthur Court silver items, incorporating brilliant design ideas obtained from nature and man-made artifacts, are beginning to replace tarnishable silver items in modern societies. Arthur Court Designs sell these items through department stores and specialty gift stores throughout USA. The items are also available through online retailers and reputed international outlets.
A person who had worked for eighteen years for design and decoration firms promoted Arthur Court Designs. His wife, Elena Court, specializes in Oriental art history and modern art, and is now part of the product development team.
The couple travels all over the world and collects minerals and artifacts. Their vast collection is a great source of design ideas that have led to the marvelous product range the company now offers.
