Newlyn Brass Rose Bowl*
Brass rose bowl from Newlyn, generally much better known for their work with copper.
However, some pieces were made in brass and this is a fine example of a decent sized rose bowl with a repoussé design of leaves and fruits of apple all around the main body of the bowl.
The removable lid has a large centre opening and we counted sixty-five holes, so it should offer a very fine display when filled with flowers.
Clearly stamped Newlyn on the underside and with a diameter of around 27 cm. The height is just a fraction below 21 cm.
We are unable to date this piece with confidence but reckon it to have been made either just before or just after the Great War.
