This magnificent antique Edwardian sterling silver bowl has a large Monteith form onto a spreading foot. The body of this antique Edwardian monteith bowl is ornamented with exceptional panels of flat engraved decoration, incorporating dynamic chinoiserie characters amongst foliate and towering structures; it can be determined that such a frieze of figures relates to a historical event or folklore. Each panel is segmented with concave fluted pales to a matte textured plateau. The decoration to the body incorporates a leaf bordered cartouche to one side, displaying a contemporary bright cut engraved coat of arms, all above the motto 'Vix Ea Nostra Voco' - I scarce call these deeds of our ancestors ours*. This impressive coat of arms is surmounted with the contemporary bright cut engraved crest of on a mount, a hind lodged in front of a hawthorn-tree, ducally gorged and chained*. This exceptional example of antique silverware is fitted with two cast and applied handles, each fashioned in the form of lion's masks grasping a hallmarked drop-ring handle. The detachable shaped rim of this antique Monteith bowl is embellished with an impressive cast and applied paralleling foliate border. The surface of the rim is embellished with further flat engraved decoration, depicting foliate and floral festoons alternating with an array of bird design. Such large genuine examples, including the detachable rim, are becoming increasingly difficult to locate. * These heraldic markings pertain to the Hussey family.

This Edwardian sterling silver Monteith bowl is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition. The applied and chased decoration is all very sharp and the flat engraved and bright cut engraved is very crisp. Full British hallmarks struck to the surface of the bowl and sleeve of the detachable rim, in addition to part hallmarks to each ring loop handle are all very clear; the hallmarks are struck deeply due to the exceptional gauge of silver. Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this Edwardian bowl.
