Early Arts & Crafts Copper Bowl
Hand beaten circular bowl fashioned from a single sheet of copper, decorated with bold, even hammering and a repeating repoussé pattern all around the main body.
Widening as it rises from the base before turning inwards immediately above the strongly beaten design. Here the hammering becomes lighter and more random, with the bowl finally flaring out into a rollover rim which is trimmed at the edges to form a series of shallow petal shapes.
At the front – if a circular bowl has a front – is a pair of wings in Egyptian revival style, spreading almost half way around the circumference.
Probably crafted shortly after the mid 1800’s and a good size at 28 cm in diameter with a height of 13 cm.
