We have been avid collectors of silver, fine antiques and art of all types for over 20 years. The bowl is marked: Loetz (underneath the glass bowl, see photo) The fact that it is marked thusly, gives me reserve to claim that it's Loetz since most by that maker are not marked. However; the blowl and base are consistent with the timeframe of this Austrian maker.
The bowl of classic late 19th century Art Noveau naturalistic form. PURPLE HUES and TONES visible throughout. Also visible are original natural air pockets and flecks of carbon deposit as is often seen in old glass. The tapered footed base is highly decorated in a classic Victorian baroque revival figural form.
Notice please the elongated, mouth stretched, figural Man of the North Wind around the base... The bowl is affixed to the base via a sterling silver bolt and stering silver domed retaining washer (marked sterling). The base has no markings as the underside base may be missing.The silver is lightly worn on the high spots only with a little base metal showing there. It presents beautifully as a centerpiece bowl or fruit bowl. A little light above or behind the bowl will bring out the beautiful glowing colors and iridescence. The stand meaures 6 high.
For collectors of genuine antiques of the Art Nouveau and Victorian period... Lease consider this as a new addition to your collection. A treasure to behold for decades to come.
