Victorian brides basket by E.G. Webster & Brother New

Lot 0110 Details

Description
Ornate over the top silver plate holder for a cased glass Victorian hand painted rose-colored bowl. Just right for the Victorian parlor, with this highly decorated piece. The base metal is heavy, giving the piece a nice weight. The handle is circular with two rods that are attached at the peak with a beaded band. The sides of the arc are decorated with an overlay of flowers and vine. The bowl rests in a central well that has a repeating repousse band of flowers. Two florid sidepieces rise from the band to contain the glass bowl. The central bowl than tapers to rest on a raised base with four florid ornate feet. The feet are tall and give the piece an airy quality.
The back of the hand-blown ruffed glass bowl is a white milk glass. The face is a nice cranberry color edged with a clear glass bead. This inside has been hand painted with flowers and leaves in blues, browns and some gold. There is a ground pontil mark on the base.
A mark reading “E.G. WEBSTER & BRO. N.Y. QUADRUPLE PLATE HARD WHITE METAL†is stamped under the base of the holder. The mark also has a central design of an arm and hammer and the number “100â€
MEASUREMENTS 12†(30.5 cm) tall x 9 3/8†(23.8 cm) diameter. Weighs 2 lb 8 oz (1.12 kg)
CONDITION The silver plate base still has considerable silver, and has shined up nicely. The rest of the piece retains little silver. I could find no dents, cracks, or chips. The glass bowl is perfect except for wear to the some of the inner painting, which is mainly just a small circle in the center. The glass shines nicely.
A visually colorful and shiny piece from the Victorian age. The combination of glass translucency and silver shine make it an object that attracts attention from across the room. Put it near a window to make it glow.
