The bowl is perched on an elaborate reticulated open work tree branch base with a scrolled and gilded plinth. Circa 1890, this elegant bowl shows in overall very good display condition. You will find some light discoloration to the inside bowl base, two rim chips that are on the same side of the bowl as well as fine rim hairlines around its interior perimeter. One cherub has lost one wing and one hand, the two wings on the other cherub have been reattached or repaired.Firing cracks and hairlines on one arm are present but are completely stable. Occasional nicks to the applied details are also seen as dictated by age and the delicate nature of the piece, now well over a century old; wear is appropriate for its age and history of use. Quite large and substantial weighing nearly 7 pounds, the centerpiece stands approximately 11", is 13.5" in length, 8.5" wide, with a base of about 9".
The hallmark is seen on the bottom of the base. Please review the photos as they are a descriptive part of the listing. Cherished for many generations before, this extraordinary and artistic centerpiece can be yours to love and appreciate for many years to come.
