Ferdinand Fuchs and Brothers Antique Sterling Silver Cupid Centerpiece Bowl, NYC, NY c. 1900

1 item left

The stunning border of this beautiful bowl is an intricate accomplishment using wire loops and attached castings of leaves and figural scenes.

The border wire loops mimic a grapevine with applied bold leaves and a series of grapes draping into the bowl section of looped wires. The pierced, oval scenes are of winged Cupids about to shoot their arrows. These eight scenes are identical.

A lovely engraved 'EJD' monogram is centered on the interior of the bowl.

The pedestal base has openwork of more looped wires ornamented with clusters of grapes and grape leaves.
