Antique English Pairpoint Bros. Repousse Sterling Silver Cup d.1900 (5.5oz) - image 1 of 14

Antique English Pairpoint Bros. Repousse Sterling Silver Cup d.1900 (5.5oz) (H)2.75in. x (W)6.5in. x (L)4.5in. A spectacular Piece of Antique English Sterling that is certain to garner the attention and respect of many. The beautiful Sterling Silver Cup is a testament to a particularly exciting artistic period (in England); when the conservative Victorian Era started to give way to that of the more liberal, Art Nouveau Era. We see evidence of such transition in this very Piece. A product of the London based Silversmiths, John & Frank Pairpoint (Trading as Pairpoint Bros.) the Sterling Cup has a production date of (1900). The Antique is comprised of: quality, thick, [.925] (English) Sterling Silver. The Sterling Cup is richly decorated by bold, ornate, Repousse, patterns. As with many Art Nouveau inspired Pieces, a strong floral theme is consistently exhibited throughout the Cup. The Repousse designs encircle the Sterling Cup with vines of blooming flowers and petals to match. The intricate, Repousse, patterns, are vividly accentuated by a perfect balance of polished Sterling, with just a hint of Patina to aid in the illumination of the aforementioned designs. What is perhaps most intriguing about this Antique are the: two, very distinct, naturally affixed, Handles. The Handles allow for genuine ergonomics; as well as aesthetics. The Sterling Cup was likely utilized as an Anniversary Cup, or Wedding Cup, in which a couple would share the Piece in a "Toast" to a moment of significance. The condition of the Antique Sterling Cup is absolutely amazing, fore despite its (120+) years of age, the Sterling Cup has retained both its structural and aesthetic integrity to such a very high degree, that it's nearly flawless. The Antique English Pairpoint Bros. Repousse Sterling Silver Cup is stored in a: dry, secured, environment, and will without question be a highly coveted Antique for collection & display.
