ANTIQUE ST SILVER VASE JAPANESE ARTS CRAFTS
Price: $500.00
Exceptional openwork sterling silver vase w raised handhammered, hand engraved birds, bamboo and leaves and extended leaves. Strong Japanese or Japanese influence such as English Arts and Crafts. Late 19th or veryearly 20th century. This is the style that influenced Tiffany ''s best silverware. Stands 8 7/8'' high, excluding wooden base. Conical shape. Round domed foot with raised pattern and hand-hammered background. Leads to very fine stem in the form of a bamboo shoot. From this a number of leaves radiate, entirely 3 dimentional. The solid bamboo shaped segments become magnificent openwork, engraved and handhammered for additional effect in the form of bamboo leaves and stems with a number of raised birds perching or swooping down on them. There is a small circular medallion in the front that has not been engraved with a monogram/name. The top flares to a ruffled, frilly flower form. There is an insert which appears to be somewhat luminescent. A wooden Chinese base at the bottom, was, I believe placed there later. It in no way interferes with the integrity of the vase and is easilly removed. The hallmarks on the side of the silver base are worn, making it difficult to be sure of the origins of the piece. There is clearly an MM or WW mark and another, complex mark, partially rubbed as well as an almost entirely rubbed mark. It is outstanding workmanship of the highest quality. The whole is in good condition except for some minor soldering on the bottom/lower segment where the radiating leaves join the stem.
