Ramsden Figural Bowl, 1936








Details

This is an outstanding quality piece of silver by the most highly accomplished British silversmith of the 20th century, Omar Ramsden. For its size, the bowl has a really hefty weight and just oozes high quality. The two cast nude female figures that act as handles are superbly formed and are each entwined within a heart-shaped rose branch and add a real elegance to the piece. The surface retain the spot hammer planishing marks from the hand-raising process. The underside is engraved with the familiar "Omar Ramsden Me Fecit" legend and the condition throughout is fabulous. This type of vessel was often made by Ramsden as a porringer, perhaps for presenting to a child at a Christening, and most that are found will be engraved with a message, however this example is blessed from being free of such personalising. A truly wonderful piece of 20th century silver.
