Probably Brazil, Early 19th Century
Mark : Crown over ?




The deep ovoid bowl engraved to the exterior with an asymmetrical vacant floral and foliate cartouche beneath a border of wrigglework, one end with foliate engraving issuing a ringed knop suspended from a sea serpent’s mouth, and a further coiled sea serpent clip; small mark to the end very rubbed but with a crown over a vertical shape, presumably the 18th or early 19th century Brazil mark; purchased in Bolivia


Condition : fine surface scratches and dents associated with most tastevins of age; no breaks or repairs


2.5” Long (Bowl) / 6” Long Overall / 1.3 oz


Price: Please Inquire









 The mark is too rubbed to be properly photographed.  However, it is definitely a crown, and probably the B below.
