Delve into the opulence of the late Victorian era with this exquisite shallow bowl, a quintessential representation of the repoussé silverwork technique that flourished during the period. Meticulously crafted with a cavalcade of animal figures ensconced within luxuriant foliage, this piece echoes the grandeur of 19th-century decorative arts.


The bowl’s surface is a tableau of high relief, where each creature is rendered with an attention to motion and emotion that is characteristic of repoussé work. The process, involving hammering the metal from the reverse to create a raised design, is showcased here with expert precision. The animals, possibly mythological in nature, appear to frolic and interact amidst the densely packed, ornate leaves and vines, suggesting a scene from a fabled woodland.


The patina that graces the silver speaks to the artifact’s journey through time, offering a glimpse into its storied past. Each dent and sign of wear is a silent testament to the countless hands it has passed through and the many tables it has graced.


This shallow bowl is not only a stunning decorative piece but also a relic that captures the essence of its era—a time when artistry was as much about storytelling as it was about beauty. It is an heirloom that stands as a testament to the skill and imagination of its unknown creator, waiting to add its historical and artistic value to your collection.
