Potpourri Bowl attr. to The Artificer’s Guild
Circular patinated copper potpourri bowl with a pierced lid that, although unmarked, is attributed to Edward Spencer of The Artificer’s Guild.
Rising off a circular pedestal, the bowl is decorated all round with a repoussé design with the lid showing an intricate pattern of veined leaves.
The inside of the lid has been polished at some time enabling the fine details of the pattern to be seen quite clearly, although we’ve not been tempted to polish the outside, much preferring the look of the aged patina.
A delightful piece of Arts & Crafts copper dating from circa 1910, in good condition and approximately 19 cm high with the diameter of the bowl at the rim measuring a touch over 18 cm.
