Whiting Antique Sterling Silver Figural Bird Dish, New York City, c. 1870s
This is an exceptional dish in an equally exceptional design. The oval, stepped pedestal base has a smooth matte finish and is engraved with a small intertwined 'SRA' monogram. The bowl is formed as a large bird's wing and is stunning. It is beautifully detailed and has a light gold wash on the surface. On one end is a cast and applied bird perched amongst a bed of feathers flowing into the bowl.
This bowl is very sculptural and a lovely work of art. It is marked underneath with Whiting's trademark and 'STERLING/ 360'. It measures 11 inches long by 3 inches high, weighs 11.45 troy ounces and is in excellent antique condition.
