This is a beautiful sterling silver bowl and under dish set by J.E Caldwell & Co. in pristine condition, embellished with highly floral repoussé fine work. What makes this stunning set even more distinctive is that it has belonged to the son (Geoffrey Tower) of Charlemagne Tower, Jr. (April 17, 1848 – February 24, 1923), who was an American businessman, scholar, and diplomat. A few of the highly positions he had held are, minister to Austria-Hungary from April 1, 1897–February 9, 1899, United States ambassador to Russia from March 19, 1899–November 19, 1902, and United States of ambassador to Germany from December 19, 1902–June 8, 1908. J.E. Caldwell is an American jeweler from Philadelphia known for its Art Nouveau and Art Deco jewels. In 1839, James Emmott Caldwell began to supply wealthy Philadelphians with stylish European jewelry, silver, and objets d'art. In 1868, the firm was officially dubbed J.E. Caldwell and Co. Throughout the 1920’s, the firm has produced fine pieces of Art Deco jewelry for which it is still known.
