Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3776f   $85.00


click for details
A late 19th century design produced by the Chicago silver firm of Wendell Manufacturing Company, "Ariel" is a highly expressive design.

The central element is a cherubic-looking figure set against a dense, decorative background. It is strongly reminiscent of Dominick & Haff's "Labors of Cupid," which it predates by five years, 1895 vs. 1900.

It is a multi-motif line, meaning the figural representation varies between different pieces.
