Christopher Nigel Lawrence 1981 silver & gilded silver surprise mushroom

This is a lovely novelty surprise mushroom by Christopher Nigel Lawrence.
Made in 1981 the top of the mushroom is in textured gilded silver & lifts off to reveal two silver elves standing on tall stools.
One elf is holding a gilded lid set with a round sodalite cabochon.
The other elf holds a silver watering can and is watering a flower that has two layers of petals, the outer layer in silver & the inner in gilded silver with a round carnelian bead centre.
The flower sits in a gilded silver jardiniere that stands on a green enamel convex base.
The slate base supports a broad based silver fluted stem that is stamped "60/250" indicating that it is no. 60 of an edition of 250.

It is hallmarked by the London Assay Office for silver & 1981 and bears the sponsor's mark "CNL" for Christopher Nigel Lawrence.
