For you to consider is an exquisite and rare Moore Bros. England centerpiece bowl from their legendary cherub collection, ca 1890. A large porcelain cactus flower with an organic and undulating lip is flanked by a winged cherub on either side, each trailing a garland of night cactus blooms. The bowl is lavishly trimmed with heavy gilding and rests on a gilded plinth. Quite heavy and substantial in size, the bowl stands 10.5, is 14 in length and 9 wide.A few repairs have been made over the decades; there are hairlines around the edge, and light staining to the bowls interior, all to be expected with a large delicate piece across 125+ years. One cherub is missing a hand and wing, and the lip of the bowl appears to have had a metallic finish applied at some point, perhaps to lessen the appearance of gilt loss or to conceal minor surface chipping along the delicate edges. Please review the photos as they are a descriptive part of the listing. Glorious even in its current state, this is an extraordinary centerpiece unlike any other that will add drama and unmistakable elegance to your table.
