This exceptional Antique 19th Century Art Nouveau Figural Centerpiece is a rare and extraordinary piece. Beautifully decorative, the unusually large bowl is the shape of an egg, a favorite Victorian design element. The bowl is held up by three beautiful young maidens. Made with the highest quality of workmanship, the bowl is hand etched with a fruit berry design. The three stunning young ladies appear to be dancing. Collectable pieces this size are almost impossible to obtain these days.
I could not find a mark, but this is very reminiscent of the luxury quality and designs of Elkington. There is a slight wear line where over the last century the stand has made a mark around the bowl. This does not bother me, but please only purchase this gorgeous piece if you adore the grace and patina of time. Who knows what stunning parties and dinners this has seen? A magnificent way to display your best garden roses for special events, and fill with antique eggs for Easter as the former owner did for family holidays. Grand to add to your silver collection. Slight wear lines reflected in the pricing.
