Rare antique silver-plate centerpiece/presentation bowl signed with the early mark for E.G. Webster & Son of New York City & Brooklyn. This company was founded in 1860 by Elizur G. Webster. This elegant piece of ornate silver-plate can be used to hold a flower arrangement or used to present bowls of special foods at dinners, parties or gatherings. The top bowl of the centerpiece is round and has a beaded edge. It has some depth to it which allows it to hold another bowl for food or small flower vase for an arrangement. The top of the centerpiece is held up by a figural winged Putti. This excellent piece of American silver is a wonderful example of high-style Victorian table ware favored by the style setters of the Period. The base of the centerpiece is square and is footed at each corner to raise the base up above the surface of the table. This piece is in very good condition with no dents or repairs and only some very minor scratches on the inside of the bowl. Over-all the silver-plate is in very fine original condition. This centerpiece is all one piece, no parts separate or unscrew. Marked on the bottom with the E.G. Webster mark and the number 189. The centerpiece itself measures 11" tall at its highest point and the square base measures 6" wide.
