Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
Excluding the handles, the top measures 9'' x 8.3'' (23 x 21 cm).
At its widest including the handles, it is 12.6'' wide (32 cm)
Bowl is 1.8'' tall (9.5 cm)
The base has a diameter of 4'' (10 cm).
The piece weighs 26 oz (770 gr).
The wear around the center has revealed a pinkish brown color, which makes me think the metal of this piece would be a copper alloy. I think this is another "German silver" (also known as alpacca, argentan or epns) item - German silver contains no actual silver, it is a copper alloy with zinc and nickel. Silver only refers to the shiny appearance of this metal. The pedestal is secured to the bowl with a large screw. That was the only part that pulled when I tested the piece with a magnet.
The bowl shows tarnish and discoloration. The center looks and feels gritty, as if it was splashed with metallic sand. I think some kind of scouring pad was used here, causing many surface scratches. Flowers and handles have black stains. The interior of the pedestal has bits of hardened glue residue in yellow. The bowl needs a good cleaning and polishing. I imagine it would look wonderful if silver plated.
Please let me know if you have any questions. I can gladly upload or send you photos from different angles if you like.
