Description


This magnificent Victorian English sterling silver Monteith bowl has a large circular rounded form onto a circular domed spreading foot.


The body of the bowl is encircled with impressive arched panels divided by chased decorated scrolling interlacing motifs below a vacant oval cartouche and scrolling leaf decoration.


Three of the panels are embellished with exceptional chased decorated intricate battle scenes incorporating figures on horseback fighting amongst their vanquished foes, attacking using swords, spears and axes, all on a matte background.


The fourth arched panel is plain and remains vacant for a personal inscription.


The lower portion of the body and foot of the bowl are encircled with chased fluted decoration.


The bowl has a plain applied moulded border to the upper rim.


The fine and impressive original hallmarked detachable crown has a shaped Monteith style rim with an applied scrolling leaf decorated border accented with floral designs to the incurved undulations.


The bowl and crown retain the original gilded interiors.


Such original monteiths are being increasingly difficult to locate.


Date: 1881

Condition


This antique monteith bowl is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The chased and applied decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the Monteith are all very clear.

The hallmarks to the crown have wear in keeping with age and location, but remain legible.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of Victorian silverware.

Diameter 30.5cm/12"
