A Lovely Ormolu Bowl with Handle
The ormolu is just as bright as it can be! The first thing you notice is the beautiful cat head in the center of the bowl. Around the inside of the bowl are four distinct areas of soft scroll work and then you see an low ormolu handle stretching from one side to the other. This would be a fine decorative piece for the dining room table or on a large sideboard.
Measurements: To top of handle is 7/8”h. x -7/8” diameter.
Circa: 9th Century
