Description and Details
We are delighted to offer this rare and special solid silver bowl made by John Edward Terrey in London, 1844. The bowl is of exceptional quality, craftsmanship and design which is of no surprise being one of J.E. Terrey's creations.
Featuring ornate chasing with crisp engravings, accentuated by a stippled background and amplified by applied cast ornamentations, this piece most certainly is not lacking in majesticness. J.E. Terrey was an excellent silversmith of the late Georgian to the Victorian era and his finest works often featured a very thick and sturdy gauge of silver that would eventually be heavily decorated with his distinct ornate style of chasing and applied cast decoration.
Some of his finer creations such as this bowl are indeed fabulous and rival the top makers and silversmiths of his time in terms of quality and craftsmanship; as a testament to such workmanship, some of his works can be found in world-renown museums such as the V&A in London (a silver basket). The top features a band of floral and acanthus motifs at intervals, all intricately decorated. The side of the bowl features further flowers and scrolls that have been hand chased. The four feet are applied silver-cast with rococo style flair and embellishments. The interior of the bowl is fully gilded with a rich gold tone and both cartouches on the exterior present a coat of arms/crest. Whilst the bowl would make for an excellent collector's display piece, due to its versatile size, it could grace a dining table as a small fruit bowl, sweet holder or perhaps even as a majestic bottle holder.
The bowl is fully hallmarked on the lower side of the exterior with English marks.
