African landscape scenes engraved punch bowl, ID ideas please?
« on: October 01, 2012, 12:47:38 PM »
Fabulous bowl, not usually my kind of thing but couldnt leave it behind and already seriously fond of it

Rubbish pics but there is a lion, elephant and rhino with trees & rocks around the whole bowl

It has a very wide ground pontil and age related wear to the base, heavy and rings like a bell

8 and 3/4 inches wide x 6 and a half inches tall

also came with 6 paper thin tumblers each engraved with a different african animal & scenery and 3 liqueur glasses with similar designs

Must have been one hellava suite when new  :)

Had expected to find a signature somewhere but not found one yet - anyone got any ideas please?

cheers
Mel

That HAS to be signed somewhere... have you peered carefully in the design, could a signature or initials be incorporated with it?
Is it copper-wheel engraved or something else? I'm afraid I can't see enough detail in the photgraphs to make out the actual quality of work very clearly.
My impression is that it is porbably fabulous and I want to see it better!

No sleuthing, just a memory that wasn't down the black hole

That is a really beautiful bowl Mel,  I was just about to say was it our own Lesley Pyke, when Christine came up with Roland Ward.
Are you going to buy the other glasses... it would be wondeful to have the whole set.
Just for a moment I was transported back to my home in East Africa... and sunshine.  :)
