Austrian Art Nouveau Solid Silver Compote Centerpiece with Iridescent Green Gold Glass Bowl with Figural Dancing Beneath Flower Hallmarked BW. Presented is a stunning Art Nouveau center piece bowl or compote with an iridescent green and gold glass bowl atop a finely crafted solid silver figural base of a dancing girl amidst long tapered leaves up from a lilly pad gush of water hallmarked for Austrian silver with what I believe to be a makers mark of WB. This item is marked for 800 fine silver; American standard sterling silver is 925 fine so there is slightly less silver in this alloy.
This is a great piece with only some repair work done to the leaves, no dents or dings, no monogram and only some fines scratches from gentle use and care as well as a slight lean to the bowl. This is an elegant artful piece of antique silver for the collector of quality Art Deco period items and a striking item in almost any décor or setting. I have an interesting assortment of items listed so please look at my other auctions.
