An antique gilt silver bowl of large size and exceptionally heavy weight; this excellent quality is just as you’d expect from a master silversmith trained by the world famous Paul Storr. Raised on a pedestal foot and having hinged lions mask side handles, this oval wine cooler takes two bottles. The deep relief applied decoration is covered in grape and vine leaf ornament, the centre ovals have a Bacchanalian scene with cherubs, a goat and an impish Bacchus, to either side there is a large bird and dolphin. Weight 4218 grams, 135.6 troy ounces. Top 21 x 23.5 cms. Height 18 cms. Sterling silver. London 1816. Maker John Houle, freeman of the Vintners’ Company.
This imposing silver bowl is in very good condition with no damage or restoration. Exceptional weight. Excellent crisp decoration. Stamped on the side with a full set of clear and matching set of English silver hallmarks. Bright original gilt, slight wear. Minor surface scratching and a couple of slight dinks.

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
