Both sides of each piece is further ornamented with exceptional and large applied vacant cartouche bordered with a ribbon tied oak and olive branch, in addition to a scrolling and leaf motif to the upper portion.
The upper portions of these concaved cartouches are subtly elevated and joined to the moulded decoration to the shaped rim. These antique silver bowls are fitted with impressive and large Art Nouveau style scrolling handles with plain plateaued upper portions and subtle thumbpieces. The knop to the pedestal is encircled with an impressive chased band of oak leaf and acorn decoration accented with a tied ribbon design.

A pair of such large bowls are becoming increasingly rare to the market.

The bowls have been professionally polished and are in presentation condition.
The applied and chased decoration is very sharp. Full hallmarks struck to the surface of each bowl are all very clear, in keeping with age and location; the definition to one set is sharper than the other. Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of these examples of antique silverware. Maker : Elkington & Co Ltd.
