Art Nouveau Period Sterling Repousse Bowl, made by Wm. B. Kerr & Co., New Jersey, circa 1900-1905. Famous for their Art Nouveau jewelry, flatware, gold dresser ware, and tableware, they were purchased by the Gorham Corp. in 1906. The bowl is marked "Sterling", "388" and shows their "hatchet" trademark on the back-see photo. Measures approximately 8" round; 2" high to the top of the "blown-out" flowers. Weighs approximately 5.35 troy ounces. Repousse, hand-done from the back of the piece, requires a master's touch. Truly beautiful as a serving piece, and a great example of Art Nouveau Silver. Some minor surface scratches, and minor tarnish spots commensurate with age and use.
