A handsome antique sterling silver pedestal bowl of circular form with half ribbed body and egg and dart border. Excellent quality and heavy gauge silver. This form is very similar to the Warwick Vase shape. The cast wrythen side carrying handles are embellished with vine leaf and grape ornament making it, together with its weight and campana form, very suitable for use as a small size wine cooler. Hand engraved to the front is an armorial within a shield, and to the reverse there is a crest of a leopard. Weight 1646 grams, 52.9 troy ounces. Height 19.5 cms. Diameter 19.5 cms. Spread 29.5 cms. London 1810. Maker Emes & Barnard.
This important silver vase is in very good condition with no damage or restoration. The hand engraved armorial and crest are still crisp and complete (difficult to photograph because they are engraved on a curved piece of silver). Stamped with a full and clear set of English silver hallmarks.
