American Arts & Crafts Silver Bowl
Hammered sterling silver bowl in the American Arts & Crafts style made by the Brand-Chatillon Co. circa 1920.
The circular shallow bowl with its evenly hammered finish rises from a rounded foot and is decorated with a pair of ornate handles crafted in the form of what appear to be poppy buds. These are on sinuous curving stems which follow the contours of the handles’ outer edges.
In good condition, commensurate with age and showing some minor surface scratches to the interior of the bowl. The diameter is approximately 25 cm, the width between the outside edges of the handles 32 cm and the height is a touch over 7 cm.
Marked beneath with the company name, sterling, the number 8022 and a partilly rubbed logo mark.
Brand-Chatillon Co. was a well respected upmarket retailer on Fifth Avenue, New York, trading approximately between the years 1910 and 1940 and they crafted some of their objects in their own workshops.
