Fabulous Late 18th Century English Brass Dairy Bowl
A splendid late 18th century English hammered and polished brass dairy bowl with embossed central bull's eye and incised ring decoration.
This attractive, useful piece measures an impressive 15 3/4" in diameter by 3 1/4" deep. It weighs almost 4 pounds. It is in very good undamaged condition. There are no splits or repairs in the brass and the metal has a wonderful mellow patina. I believe the hanging hook is a Victorian addition.
These bowls served many purposes in the Georgian kitchen and to find one in such wonderful condition is rare...they are usually very worn and often repaired. A similar example is pictured on page 338, fig. A, of 'The Brass Book, American, English and European, Fifteenth Century through 1850', by Peter, Nancy and Herbert Schiffer.
A very pleasing, useful and decorative piece of early brass dating to the last quarter of the 18th century.
