1 item left


This lovely centerpiece bowl by William Gale & Son is a beautiful example of mid 19th century silver from New York City.

The top rim is bordered with a stunning die-rolled border of a grapevive with leaves and clusters of grapes. The detail is quite striking. The body is repoussed and then chased to develop the flowing floral and foliate decoration. There is a cartouche on both sides. One is engraved 'L. P' in a gothic style and the other side is engraved 'L.P.T/ Oct. 10, 1899' in the same style.

Attached to the body is a beautiful pedestal base with shaped border of applied scroll devices and four foliate feet.

This stunning centerpiece is marked underneath with Gale & Son's trademark with the 1856 date along with 'Wm. GALE & SON/ NEW-YORK'.

It measures 10 inches in diameter by just over 6 inches high, weighs 23.65 troy ounces and is in excellent antique condition.
