International "Wedgwood" Sterling Footed Vegetable Bowl
International's 1924 "Wedgwood" pattern apparently took its inspiration from the English pottery of the same name, as the motif seems to replicate in silver the classical imagery that Wedgwood produced in clay. It was designed by International's renowned Alfred G. Kintz. This piece is an 8 1/2" diameter, 4 1/4" high, vegetable bowl that stands on a 4 1/4" wide footed base. It is solid sterling silver and weighs 18.6 T. oz. Bowls in this line came in plain and rimmed bottom versions and some with the banding facing upward and some with the banding applied as a border on the sidewalls. The footed versions with sidewall design like this seem to be less common. It is in exceptionally fine estate condition. There are no dents or dings. The base sits evenly. The finish is nicely patinated, and it is without a monogram or removal. Marks are "Wedgwood," "International," the Simpson, Hall, Miller shield and helmet emblem, model number "D57," and "Patented."
