DescriptionA John Wendt Floral Centerpiece Bowl with Strawberry Motif for Black, Starr & Frost, New York, circa 1860
Marks: ENGLISH STERLING, NEW YORK, BLACK, STARR & FROST
9-3/8 inches inches high x 10-1/2 inches wide (23.8 x 26.7 cm)
27.62 troy ounces
Note: The Black, Starr & Frost stamp is of a later vintage than other markings, as the firm did not include the partnership between Cortlandt Starr & Aaron Frost until 1876. By that time, sterling silver was a common medium utilized by many American silversmiths, and would have not necessitated the "English Sterling" designation. Originally retailed by Black, Starr & Frost, New York.
