Description


This exceptional antique George V sterling silver potpourri bowl with lid has a plain circular rounded form onto four feet


The body of the bowl has a planished finish with an applied rope twist decorated border to the rim, all in the Arts and Crafts style.


The cover retains the original hallmarked pierced decorated cover depicting scrolling stem designs accented with leaf and cinquefoil motifs.


The rim of the cover is encircled with a simplified rope twist border in addition to three hooks, allowing the cover to sit securely to the rim of the bowl.


This impressive bowl was crafted by the notable Arts and Crafts silversmith Hugh Wallis*.


* Hugh Wallis was a trained and educated artist who developed his skills into metalwork, and becoming an influential figure in the Northern Art Works Guild. Only years before this piece was crafted he still portrayed himself as an artist and employed others to help with the production of his impressive designs in copper, pewter and brass; with only a small amount being crafted in silver.


Date: 1922

Condition


This antique potpourri bowl with lid is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The embossed decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the bowl and part hallmarks to the underside of the cover are all very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this example of antique silverware.
