Gorgeous antique Dutch hallmarked sterling silver & beautiful intaglio etched or engraved glass juice or punch bowl, 16 5/8" tall with lid and both pieces with superb condition with ornate decoration! We surely should have had this one listed before the Holiday entertaining season but, this piece is both a stunning decorative piece when not in use and as elegant as can be for use at a small party or dinner event. A stunning pair, lid and body in mouth blown glass and as brilliant as can be, the pontil mark on the base visible! The top silver finial or handle has Dutch hallmarks and a lovely engraved pattern including flowers on the vine. We're not sure of the maker, the silversmith mark appears to be "VE%" with a star but I don't have a reference for Dutch silver at the moment. The tiny sword mark was used between 1814-1905 in the Netherlands so the exact year of manufacture is a little uncertain but within those dates. A fabulous serving piece and one of two great old Dutch silver & glass or crystal works of art that we're adding today. The other a scrumptious butter or cheese dome & tray so be sure to take a look at it while you're with us. Thanks!
Very good to excellent condition. Some light surface scratches to the bottom but no chips or cracks. There are a few tiny nips around the inner edge of the lid area but none to the rim of the base/bowl. No other chips, cracks or damage to note. The bowl and lid weigh 4 lbs. 15 oz. total. See pictures for all measurements.
