Aesthetic Movement sterling silver compote. Made by John R. Wendt in New York, ca 1870. Oval bowl with engraved single-letter monogram and raised volute-scroll ends. Leaf and berry knop on short support mounted to stepped and domed foot with raised ornamental band between beaded borders. Restrained Classicism in the fashionable Greek taste ramped up at ends with calla lilies—big, bold blooms, the leaves splayed and stems banded to exterior. The perfect centerpiece for an Oscar Wilde reading.

Marked “English Sterling”, which is associated with Wendt, and retailer's stamp for “Braverman & Levy / San Francisco”, who were in business from the 1850s to 1880s. Very good condition.

Overall dimensions: H 11 x W 13 1/2 x D 8 1/4 in. Weight: 45 troy ounces. #BV751
