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

This stunning bowl is marked underneath with Ferdinand Fuchs' trademark and "STERLING/ 2723/ 12IN" along with the Detroit, MI retailer "WRIGHT KAY & CO." It measures 12 inches in diameter by 5.75 inches high, weighs 39.90 troy ounces and is in excellent antique condition.
