George Shiebler Gilt Sterling Sommelier-Lion Terminal

A most unusual parcel-gilt sterling sommelier/wine taster by well known New York silversmith George Shiebler, circa 1890-1900. Shiebler was one of the most creative and best known of the 19th century silversmiths, and was known to use aesthetic movement themes, as well as animals, insects, medallion profiles, as well as wonderful mixed metals. This piece measures 5 1/8", with the fluted, parcel gilt bowl having a diameter of 2 1/4". Weight is 58 grams. The terminal is of a lion rampant, with a presentation date on the reverse of March 31, '98. The outer rim of the bowl has the Shiebler winged hallmarks, as well as "sterling". This uncommon piece would make a great gift or addition to a collection-even as a crossover piece for lion collectors.

Condition is excellent, with no dents or dings; the gilding is for the most part, completely intact.
