Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The plain body of each piece is encircled with an impressive band of applied and chased olive leaf festoon decoration consisting of overlapping leaf designs with a bead motif to subdivision.
Both sides of each piece is further ornamented with exceptional and large applied vacant cartouche bordered with a ribbon tied oak and olive branch, in addition to a scrolling and leaf motif to the upper portion.
The upper portions of these concaved cartouches are subtly elevated and joined to the moulded decoration to the shaped rim.
These antique silver bowls are fitted with impressive and large Art Nouveau style scrolling handles with plain plateaued upper portions and subtle thumbpieces.
The knop to the pedestal is encircled with an impressive chased band of oak leaf and acorn decoration accented with a tied ribbon design.
These fine examples of Art Nouveau silverware are embellished with a further band of chased olive leaf decoration to the lower portion of the feet.
A pair of such large bowls are becoming increasingly rare to the market.
