Brides Basket Rare Webb Threaded Herringbone Bowl and Meriden Blacksmith Basket
In my extensive research I have only come across a few WHITE mother of pearl bowls in this herringbone pattern and only two others of this particular silver plated blacksmith basket. The brides bowl is amazing with its extremely hard to find white threaded herringbone pattern covered in a hand painted two-toned golden floral designs that swirl around the outside. A lone gold butterfly also accents the exterior and I have been made aware that this is a familiar Webb signature. The inside of the bowl is done in a luscious deep pink. The softly waved top of the bowl form a visually pleasing rolling shape and is covered in gold gild. The polished pontil is marked B336 over 956/5. The bowl is 4" tall and 9" in diameter across at the mouth opening. The fabulous Meriden quadruple silver plated basket is marked on the bottom and stands 9.75 tall on three pawed feet. The basket features three full sized, 5.75 tall winged cherubs at blacksmith stands. Each are hard at work and some of their tools are scattered at their feet. The 1 raised plateau above the pawed feet is finely detailed as is the outside circular piece which fits the base of the bowl, around which three intricate scrolled wings can be found.
Together, with the stunning and unique bowl sitting in its silver plated cherub holder/basket, the marriage of the two makes this piece soar to a height of almost 14, creating a prominent display that would surely be the topic of conversation at any social gathering. The bowl and the basket are both in excellent condition. There are no chips, cracks, scratches or loss of gilding to the bowl.
The basket shows no repairs or structural flaws. The silver plating is wonderful. The item "Brides Basket Rare Webb Threaded Herringbone Bowl and Meriden Blacksmith Basket" is in sale since Tuesday, June 20, 2017.
