A good Art Déco fruit bowl

A good Art Déco sterling silver fruit bowl
Birmingham 1939 by the Adie Brothers

This exceptional vintage Art Déco sterling silver bowl has an oval rounded form onto swept panelled pedestal and bracket style feet, all in the iconic Art Déco style. The surface of the bowl is plain and unembellished, apart from a band of tooled decoration to the moulded rim. The body incorporates an impressive pair of tiered Art Déco style scrolling handles ornamented with chased fruit and foliate ornamentation to the upper portion. This impressive presentation piece is supported by four plain, swept domed bracket style feet with further tiered ornamentation. An impressive example of its type and crafted in a desirable style.
