DSCG Copper and Silver Bowl*
Delightfully pretty little patinated copper bowl embellished with applied silver decoration all around, showing beneath the mark of the Duchess of Sutherland Cripples’ Guild.
Raised off a circular foot, the bowl itself is has a flared rim and a lightly hammered finish. Silver in the form of a double grape vine with leaves and bunches of grapes, is applied around the belly of the bowl, contrasting very effectively with the deep patination of the copper.
Parts of the silver are a little dirty in places but we have made no attempt to clean it, preferring to leave it just as it is.
The height is 10 cm and the diameter 13.5 cm. Dating from around 1910.
