This magnificent Victorian English sterling silver bowl has a circular rounded form onto a circular pedestal spreading foot.
The large body of this sterling silver bowl is encircled with an applied moulded girdle, above the contemporary bright engraved crest of a wheat sheaf.
The upper portion of the body is further ornamented with an exceptional cast and applied scene depicting warrior style characters preparing for combat; it can be determined that such a frieze of figures relates to a historical event or folklore.
The lower portion of the bowl is embellished with impressive fluted decoration.
The plain rim of this Elkington & Co silver bowl is encompassed with an applied moulded border.
This bowl is fitted with two large cast sterling silver handles, embellished with exceptional spiraling foliate decorated terminals and ribbed handpieces.
