German Continental Silver Pair of 19th C. Compotes / Footed Centerpiece Bowls

$ 4,500
  • Description
    Neresheimer, German continental 0.800 silver pair of compotes or footed centerpiece bowls displaying exquisite craftsmanship in the hammering of the silver and in the delicate decorative motifs adorning the body of the centerpieces from the late 19th or early 20th century. Each measures 8 5/8'' in height by 9 7/8'' in diameter at the top and bears hallmarks as shown. Total weight is an impressive 97 troy ounces.

    Neresheimer was founded in 1890 as a partnership of August and Ludwig Neresheimer with Jean Schlingloff. Right from the start Neresheimer offered a wide range of highly decorative objects like nefs, tankards, coconut and nautilus cups, and other sumptuous sideboard pieces. An article in The Watchmakers, Jewellers and Silversmiths' Trade Journal gives a contemporary account of a visit to the Neresheimer company in 1903. The visit must have been an enormous success. Of the Neresheimer production the author states: "Nothing was too small or too large." The idyllic setting of the factory, the modern, well-lit premises, the tasteful furnishings of Neresheimer's private office, and the affability of his host contributed to his assessment that the establishment "breathed the very air of artistic feeling." Neresheimer’s works have appeared at prestigious auctions, for instance at Christie’s where one of its boats sold for over 30,000 GBP in 2017.
