A superior cut glass, silver lidded Powder Bowl, made by the renowned silver maker: Mappin & Webb. This is a wonderfully proportioned large bowl (measuring 8.5 cm high x 11.5 cm diameter width). Around the body of the bowl, the cut glass pattern is delightful and there is a cut glass star to the base. The solid silver pull off lid is handsomely decorated with a Greek Key pattern. The overall appearance is particularly attractive. The underneath of the lid has a gilt washed finish.
Clear hallmarks are visible on the lip of the silver lid for the London Assay Office with a date mark for 1928 and Lion Passant indicating the finest sterling silver. The maker's mark is worn but we have identified it from a matching piece to be Mappin & Webb.
A wonderful powder bowl, fabulous for a collector and in super condition.
