Keswick School Planter
Oval brass and copper planter showing the mark of the Keswick School of Industrial Arts, dating from around 1900 or a little before.
With riveted joints at each end, the metal is wrapped into an oval shape with the larger brass area showing a finely hammered background and a repoussé design of what appear to be clematis flowers and leaves. In the centre towards the top on each side is a little decorative copper square turned onto one corner.
A narrow band of copper runs around the rim and another wider band, decorated with dainty stylised flowers and leaves, circles the base of the bowl.
Lovely aged patina although a small area at top right on the back has been polished fairly recently, presumably to accentuate the KSIA mark.
The condition is good apart from the base which is worn and somewhat perforated in places – see last photo.
Approximately 27 X 15 cms and just a touch under 17 cm high.
