Description and Details
We are delighted to offer this spectacular Georgian solid silver tazza/bowl made by Charles Reily & George Storer in London, 1835.Featuring an exceptionally intricate, ornate and symbolic theme, this tazza is exemplary of fine Georgian silver craftsmanship.
The tazza features a wonderful 'basketweave' style design with interlocking and looping sides, attached to a pedestal base and heavily embellished on top with harvest motifs. The top wreath features cast-silver vine leaves and wheat; hand-chased and finely stippled, giving a very realistic, detailed and naturalistic design.
In addition to its opulent and eye-catching design which would most certainly grace and elevate interior decor, the tazza is also practical even in the modern day with many uses.With some creativity, the tazza may be used as a fruit bowl, bread basket, for serving sweets etc. The naturalistic design also complements fine interiors with distinguished style and aesthetic flair; it may be particularly delightful when paired with other designs of nature's fine offerings, both in modern and classical decors. Despite the basket's pierced/woven design, there is substantial weight when held in hand, which reflects the high-quality gauge of silver that is used by the silversmith to create this silver artwork.A full set of English hallmarks are present on the base of the tazza.
