For your consideration we are pleased to present an elegant two cherub and applied floral centerpiece bowl. Exquisitely detailed and flanked by winged cherubs, the gilt trimmed free form bowl with an undulating lip is draped with applied spring flowers and foliage.
The bowl is perched on an elaborate tree trunk pedestal base that is accented with gilding and blue enamel. By Moore Brothers circa 1890, from their legendary series of cherub porcelains, this elegant bowl shows in overall very good display condition. You will find light discoloration, surface chipping, and glaze loss to the hand of one cherub, and the outstretched arm of the other cherub has had an older repair or reattachment.
Uniform crazing is seen as well as expected minor, yet unnoticeable chipping/loss to the applied floral detailing as dictated by age and the delicate nature of the piece which is well over a century old. Wear is appropriate for its age and history of use.The centerpiece stands approximately 9.5", is 12.5" in length, 5.5" wide, with a base of about 8". The hallmark is seen on the bottom of the base. Please review the photos as they are a descriptive part of the listing. A gorgeous and remarkable centerpiece of heirloom quality you'll be pleased to pass through the generations.
