SOLD! MUSEUM DRAGON Bowl,Derby Silverplate, c.1880
Aesthetic DRAGON Bowl Derby Silverplate, c.1880 Rare Aesthetic Chinoiserie with two figural dragon handles on a bowl with a Chinese cloud pattern. Made by the Derby Silver Co. This handsome bowl is 5 1/2" tall and 10" wide. Excellent finish, save one spot of wear inside the bowl. Far better than most silverplate finishes. The dragon details are crisp. ...................This Aesthetic silverplate selection reflects many features of the Japanese Influences on the Aesthetic Movement. The sources of inspiration inspired the American craftsmen to experiment with hand tooled finishes, bands of rolled dies that speeded up the ornamentation, designs that reflected Japanese designs, including textile designs and the love of nature enjoyed by both Japanese and American cultures, which resulted in sculptural forms of nature, including the treatment of metal as if it was fabric. Although the objects were machine made, much of the decoration was done by hand, either finishing the castings of the silverplate or incising the designs. These are some of the influences among the richest creativity in production during the years 1875 to 1900.
