maker Ernest Eschwège, Paris circa 1920, sixteen by twenty-six inches, weight 82.6 Troy ounces, fine condition, no monogram.

With stylish foliate handles and an applied border, this is an exceptionally functional, high quality item.

Let's take a moment to reflect upon why a dealer, or at least Yours Truly, chooses to add an item to inventory.

Over the years, we've handled many many pieces of Martelé, and if you dear reader will forgive me for a bit of crudeness, most of them are "trashed." Specifically, the detail is severely worn away, leaving the beauty of the overall design still appreciable but no longer intact...

This piece bears the craftsman's mark of both Robert Bean and Fletcher Carter. Also, let's give a shout out to the good folks at ONC, still going strong in Amesbury after one hundred years, who were kind enough to identify this cup as the "Roly Poly cordial."

Similar examples may also be seen in the collection of Boston's Museum of Fine Arts, and the Detroit Institute of Arts.
