Vintage Compote Fruit Bowl Wrought Iron Greek Mythology Art Nouveau:
At sale we present a very unusual Art Nouveau compote, or fruit bowl, made of wrought iron. Look at the shadows this "pierced" bowl emits when lit from above. We're not sure whom the Greek mythological figure are, but they seem to each have a mission! The black wrought iron base reminds us of an antique "pub table" pedestal and it is very ornate.
The compote sits squarely, and has no wobble. There are some numbers stamped into the underside of the pedestal and there is some light rusting way up underneath. It looks great as it is with the patina, or you can give it a very light coat of black satin spray to make it look new (but why would we want that?)
It's 8" in diameter and 4" high. You won't find one of these at the BigMart!! Thanks for looking!
