Art Deco Crystal & Silver Plate Punch Bowl/ Trophy with Etched Geometric Designs

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


This exquisite punch bowl was realized in cut crystal and silver plate for the Daimler Motor Company in June of 1922. It embodies the superlative craftsmanship rarely seen today in its elaborate starburst and geometric patterns etched throughout and stunning metalwork details. The globular body has been incised with striated fan shaped forms resembling starbursts and celestially inspired geometric forms, suggesting stylized stars. It rests on a round base with metal beadwork around its perimeter, orbital feet, and two rectangular handles with rounded edges. The lid similarly is adorned with metal beadwork around its outer edge and offers a globular finial, echoing the shape of the body, in geometrically etched glass. Additionally, the piece includes a silver plate ladle. This is a perfectly functional punch bowl, presenting an ideal serving vessel for your favourite cocktail, such as Holiday Eggnog, spiked punch, or mint juleps. It is also an exquisite object that could be admired as an objet d'art atop a kitchen counter, sideboard or bookcase, not to mention an important piece of history. The base of the punch bowl is inscribed "Ehrenpreis Der Daimler-Motoren Gesellschaft Werkaufsstelle Frankfurt A/M Homburger-Sportwoche Juni 1922." Excellent condition.

Germany, circa 1922.
