Vintage Art Deco Sterling Silver Pierced Design Heart Shaped Candy Dish Candy Bowl Pin Cushion Base

Dating to the 1930s or so (best guess) may I offer this heart shaped candy dish, candy bowl, pin tray, pin cushion base or catch-all with a pierced cutwork design to the top. This is the type of silver piece that a lady would have stuffed with sawdust, added a bit of cloth and turned into a pin cushion. Yes, it's a little on the large side, but it's awfully cute!

Condition: Being vintage, there are light marks of use, storage and time. The patina is wonderfully warm and I try to only lightly polish for photos. There are no major defects like dings, dents or ugly blemishes that might spoil the beauty of the silver. If a high shine is desired, all that’s needed is another polish.

Metal Content: Sterling Silver with Gorham hallmarks, STERLING, T Y V

Size: 4-3/16" x 4-1.8" Depth is about 3/4".

Weight: 57.8 grams

Final Comments: When was the last time you saw a heart shaped piece of silver of this design?

(SCJ#193)

FINAL COMMENTS: When I can, I will beat anyone’s price on RL. I want to turn over the silver inventory quickly so I can keep loading in more. St. Louis was a boom city in the 1800s and the silver inventory here is legendary. For those who know, the 1904 World’s Fair held one of the largest competitions in silver design – all the big maker names of the day competed and a lot of the winning pieces stayed in St. Louis after the Fair ended. So keep watching my listings, I never know what I am going to have week to week – all I know is it will be varied, fabulous and deserving of a good home.
