Nelson and Nelson wishes you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving. In the spirit of the season, enjoy this intoxicating antique Reed and Barton sterling silver punch bowl, an exceptional estate-condition piece that's perfect for this festive time of the year!
This magnificent punch bowl by Reed and Barton of Taunton, Mass. was made circa 1900. The bowl is fully marked with Reed and Barton’s maker’s mark, sterling standard mark, pattern #270A, and a French touchmark indicating that at some point the bowl was imported into France. The bowl is of circular bombe form, raised on a circular pedestal foot, and the rim of the bowl and foot are applied with a cast and chased grapevine border. The grapevine is finely hand chased onto the bowl in a continuous manner emanating from the chased rims. The decoration shows traces of hand hammering highlighting the vine motif. This is a finely executed work of art and would look beautiful holding an impressive floral centerpiece.
