The lower portion of the large body of the bowl is ornamented with fine and impressive embossed batwing style fluted ornamentation.
The upper rim is encircled with an impressive pierced decorated baluster border.
This antique centrepiece retains the original detachable push fit wirework display cover.
The centrepiece is fitted with two exceptional angular handles incorporating pierced and chased ‘slipped’ Tudor rose* designs to the upper portions, all in the Arts and Crafts style.
The bowl is supported by a plain oval domed spreading foot embellished with an applied moulded border to the rim.
This exceptional and imposing centrepiece is of a very high quality.
* The Tudor rose, also known as the Union rose, is a traditional heraldic emblem pertaining to England. The conjoined design of the red rose (House of Lancaster) with the white rose (House of York) to the centre was created by Henry VII in the late 15th century as unification of the two houses after his marriage to Elizabeth of York.
