And the ball beaded top gallery & base combine to make this one visually interesting & ornate piece of Victorian Era silverplate. The glorious bowl insert was made by Libbey c. 1900 and measures 12" wide X 5 1/2" tall..
Combined the assembled set stands an impressive 8 3/8" tall X 12" wide and weighs 7 pounds 13 ounces. This exquisite American Brilliant Period cut glass INTAGLIO Engraved bowl is cut depict ing (3) cartouches of fruiting pears with leaves, each.Motif is punctuated by hobstar chains, fans and star fills in a most pleasing arrangement. Though the Porter Brittainia Silverplate centerpiece base frame is 20 or 30 years older than the C. Bowl, they indeed are a perfect size match! If you note the final detail image, you will note there is (1) single break to the ball beaded top gallery (nearest to one handle).
This is virtually impossible to see when the piece is displayed and it affects the integrity of the piece not a whit.. You also note a very slight warp to the ball beaded top rim gallery present which is highly inconspicuous..Otherwise, there are no flaws to the silverplate base at all. Also, no flaws to glass are present at all and it has been very, very well inspected.
No chips, cracks, nicks to the finely detailed cut exteriors, no top toothrim nicks or other flaws are present! A few tiny scratches which are very few indeed, as the good photos show! This is simply one superbly conditioned hand fabricated piece of luxury cut glassware indeed! A nice early one in great condition for the lover of vintage figural plate indeed! The figural style base draws inspiration from such artistic themes as: Neo-Gothic, Baroque Revival, and Rocco Revival and the centerpiece is large enough in size to serve as a focal point on any formal dining table or other kingly setting.
