It is formed from planished (hammer finished) metal which appears to be plated copper. The metal has built up a very nice aged patina over the years, originally it may have had a polished finish. It is of large size and was perhaps intended for fruit or as a centerpiece. It would also make a fine large pot pourri bowl. It is stamped to the underside of the bowl P.Stayce, presumably for the manufacture, but we have been unable to trace them. It is a fine looking piece which would be wonderful in the right setting and bound to be noticed.
It looks old and aged which is the charm of the item. Interior aged and plating uneven as visible in the images and rivet heads visible (from production). No significant knocks, dents or creases in the metal. Height 30 cms (12 inches). Width 29 cms (11.5 inches) at rim.Weight 1500 grams (before packing).
