Fabulous antique to vintage Continental .800 (nearly sterling) silver & wheel cut glass 14" jardiniere or centerpiece, a magnificent fruit bowl or serving piece in the French Empire style with reticulated floral garland and scrolled acanthus feet! Isn't this one gorgeous! Nice larger size at a a hair under 14" wide, the cut glass insert measures an impressive 11 1/4" x 6"! Normally, we see these larger glass lined pieces with an open bottom, this one rather unique with a full silver base in thick, heavy and pure .800 silver. Silversmith marks are German for F. Lodholz (Freiburg) and the work is circa the early 1900s. An ornate reticulated silver framework in the always popular Classical or French Empire revival style. A thick and heavy wheel cut insert, original and shimmering beautifully with a scalloped rim and crisp cuts! Fantastic...definitely :), don't miss it!
Very good condition. There is one spot on a side handle that has a dent and slight bend (See pictures). No flaws, damage or repairs otherwise, superb! The silver alone weighs 20.6 troy ounces or 642 grams. See pictures for all measurements.
