Unger Brothers "Cupid
click for more pictures for item 2669f
One of several, fanciful, Art Nouveau designs produced by Unger Brothers that feature ethereal figures, "Cupid's Nosegay" is captivatingly charming.
The nosegay (essentially a bouquet) is comprised of a gathering of floral elements and three clustered and one single cherub faces. The blossoms portrayed include irises and narcissus.
This example is a 5 3/4" long, just under 1.0 T. oz., teaspoon engraved "Lucile 1903" on the backside of the bowl.
It is in excellent condition. Polishing wear is nil. The pattern details remain well-defined, retaining all the facial features of the cherubs and floral elements. The bowl is well-shaped and free of dents, burrs, or tip wear.
Marks are Unger's entwined "UB" surrounded by "925 Fine Sterling."
