In excellent condition with no rust or dents is this metal decorative lidded bowl that sets atop 3 brass egret or crane type birds. Authentic Art Nouveau piece 1900-1910.
In great shape, this has been one of my personal decorative pieces in my home for many years. Would make a great candy dish or bowl. The inside has a protective resin. A great piece all around! It is metal with brass and a "steeple" on the top. The metal is made to look like aged bronze with a greenish tone to it. A super piece representing animals, which was a huge theme in the Art Nouveau Era.
It is 8 inches across, or 10 inches including the extension of the birds on the sides. There are 3 brass birds. Well made. Stands 6 inches tall with the steeple lid.
