Silver and Metal Work ~ JEAN DESPRES ART DECO COVERED BOWL

JEAN DESPRES ART DECO COVERED BOWL

JEAN DESPRES ART DECO COVERED BOWL

Jean Despres produced some of the most interesting jewelry and objects of the Art Deco period and beyond. He made each piece himself, and has a unique style that combines simplicity and strong design with opulent accents, as can be seen with the polished curved handles set off by his well-known hammered surfaces on this elegant covered bowl. This piece is beautiful as a decorative object, but also quite useful.

Despres seldom worked in silver, preferring silver plate on metal. 3.624 x 5.25 inches.
