Japonesque sterling silver and mixed metal bowl. Made by Gorham in Providence, ca 1880-5. Round and curved with flared rim and raised foot. Allover honeycomb hand-hammering visible on interior and exterior. Fruiting branch with overhanging leaves and strawberries—not to mention a pesky fly—applied to one side. On other are birds, some soaring in flight and others mundanely pecking at granulated soil. Fully marked including maker’s stamp and no. 1845. Very good condition with nice shimmer.

Overall dimensions: H 3 3/4 x W 9 1/8 x D 8 1/8 in. Gross weight: 15.5 troy ounces. #BS557
