This bowl has survived over 120 years in excellent condition! Clearly it was valued and cherished by its former owners.
It is the wonderful, Chantilly patterned, heart-shaped bowl. Complete with its bowls, swags, scrolls, and navette and cross piercings.
Other than tarnish in the deeper areas, which in fact enhance the decoration, this bowl is fully functional and waiting for new owners to claim it!
It stands on 3 large ball feet. It measures 8" x 7". No monograms. The Gorham hallmark and date mark are shown in photo (1893) and are well-worn - emblematic of many, many polishings over the last 12 decades!
