ca 1920's Alvin Company Dish Sterling Silver Floral Repousse 67.2 gms.
Created as the Alvin Manufacturing Company in 1886, the business prided itself on the finest Art Nouveau designs and has since been purchased by the renowned silversmithing firm, Gorham.
The perfect little dish, this piece features the most dazzling stamped decoration covering approximately 1 ¼” around the rim.
This is no wimpy dish at over 67 grams of silver.
The central reservoir remains smooth. As you can see, the pattern is characterized by an elegant motif of foliate scrolls and repeating dots.
There are some areas of patination in the deeper crevices of the pattern and we love the contrast because it brings out the detail of the floral decoration.
The Alvin Co. original hallmark is cleanly stamped on the underside of the dish, assuring us that the piece was likely manufactured in the 1910's or early 1920’s.
“Sterling” is stamped above the hallmark and the design number, “464”, is stamped underneath.
There is patina and some very minor expected wear this dish is still vivid, shiny, and brilliant.
It really is a dazzling example of what Art Nouveau silver should look like.
This has great weight for its size. It is lovely and romantic.
