Stunning C.1890 Gorham Marie Antoinette Sterling Silver Centerpiece Bowl with Silverplate Flower Frog
PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE PLACING A PURCHASE ORDER TO MAKE SURE THE BOWL IS STILL AVAILABLE
The absolute find of the month! From Gorham, here's a silver centerpiece bowl in the desirable Marie Antoinette pattern AND to make it even more desirable, it comes with its original silverplate flower frog! I believe this is the largest centerpiece Gorham made in the pattern - it can hold anything you can think of! No monogram anywhere!
Condition: I have gone over both pieces with a fine tooth comb and nothing is amiss - I can't find a dent, ding or blemish. Of course, 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, the main polish I leave to the new owner.
Metal Content: Sterling Silver and Electroplated Silver
Hallmarks: On the bowl, Gorham, Gorham Hallmarks, Sterling, A20026, Sheaf of Wheat?, Marie Antoinette. On the frog bottom, A20026 E.P.
Size: The bowl measures about 13" side to side. Height is about 4". Width of the frog is 9"; height is about 3-1/4".
Weight: The bowl weighs 996.4 grams. The frog weighs 438 grams.
Final Comments: A hard to find combo of excessive beauty! Oh, and try to find another on the Internet - I have searched high and low and the only one I could find was a photo on Pinterest with the wrong flower frog!
