German Continental Silver Pair of 19th Century Compotes/Footed Centerpiece Bowls

About the Item

Neresheimer, German continental 0.800 silver pair of compotes or footed centerpiece bowls displaying exquisite craftsmanship in the hammering of the silver and in the delicate decorative motifs adorning the body of the centerpieces from the late 19th or early 20th century. Each measures 8 5/8'' in height by 9 7/8'' in diameter at the top and bears hallmarks as shown. Total weight is an impressive 97 troy ounces. Neresheimer was founded in 1890 as a partnership of August and Ludwig Neresheimer with Jean Schlingloff. Right from the start Neresheimer offered a wide range of highly decorative objects like nefs, tankards, coconut and nautilus cups, and other sumptuous sideboard pieces. An article in The Watchmakers, Jewellers and Silversmiths' Trade Journal gives a contemporary account of a visit to the Neresheimer company in 1903. The visit must have been an enormous success. Of the Neresheimer production the author states: "Nothing was too small or too large." The idyllic setting of the factory, the modern, well-lit premises, the tasteful furnishings of Neresheimer's private office, and the affability of his host contributed to his assessment that the establishment "breathed the very air of artistic feeling." Neresheimer’s works have appeared at prestigious auctions, for instance at Christie’s where one of its boats sold for over 30,000 GBP in 2017. Please feel free to ask us any questions, and please see our other listings.

    By Watson Silver
    Located in Dayton, OH
    "Antique Watson number B223 sterling silver footed trophy bowl / serving compote, monogrammed in the center with the initials CMC. “The origin of the firm traces back to 1874 when was formed in Attleboro, MA, the Cobb, Gould & Co. The founders were Clarence L. Watson, Fred Newell, Charles Cobb, Samuel Gould and W.A. Battey. The firm produced a line of jewelry goods, mainly gold plated. Between 1875 and 1880 Battey, Cobb and Gould withdrew from the partnership and Watson and Newell, the only ones left, formed a new firm operating under the name Watson & Newell (1880-1886). In 1887 Joseph R. Ripley joined to the business and the firm changed its name to Watson, Newell & Co. In 1891 also Edward L. Gowern entered the partnership. The business continued with success and, needing larger quarters, in 1894 the old Mechanics Mill property was bought opening the new factory in 1896. The name changed to Watson & Newell Co, while Mechanics Sterling Company was the name of the subsidiary flatware branch. In 1899 the firm obtained its first flatware patent (Clarence L. Watson) and began a wide production of flatware and souvenir spoons. Failing health forced Fred Newell to retire from the active participation to the firm shortly after the turn of the century. He remained as a non-active partner until his death (1910). In 1904 the sleeve and collar buttons division became a separate operating unit with the name of Standard Button Company under the direction of Ripley and Gowen. In this period the firm produced hundreds of sterling souvenir spoons...
