DescriptionAn American Martelé-Style Silver-Plated Center Bowl, late 20th century
4-7/8 inches high x 12-3/8 inches diameter (12.4 x 31.4 cm)
The bowl having wavy everted rim with hand-hammered texture, rim adorned with foliate, floral, and berry motifs interspersed between blank cartouches, body with conforming lobed sections, interior bowl gilded, raised on scrolled leaf-form feet.
Note: The marks to the underside are facsimiles, and the bowl is silver-plated. This bowl was not produced by Gorham. The bowl's design is identical to Berry Bowl 3979, produced in January 1900, and illustrated on page 110 of Dr. Larry Pristo's Martelé: Gorham's Art Nouveau Silver volume. Bowl 3979 was also recorded to have been gilded to the interior (albeit with a recorded silver fineness of .950) and was exhibited at the Paris Exposition in 1900. The present example was likely made by Ross Simons, who copied this bowl design in one sterling example and an unknown number of plated examples.
