One of the stand out companies producing Art Nouveau designs either side of the turn of the 20th century, Newark, New Jersey silver manufacturer and jewelry maker William B. Kerr's work remains sought after today.

This 3 3/4" diameter by 1 1/4" high, .6 T. oz., individual nut or candy dish exemplifies the firm's design capabilities.

It features raised pond lily leaves alternating between indistinct, i.e. ethereal, floral elements, all arrayed on an undulating rim. The stylized stems form a swirling pattern trailing from the sidewalls to the bottom center of the piece.

Without a monogram or inscription, it is in excellent condition. It is free of dents or bends or polishing wear and has an even finish. There are three faint pinprick surface dimples visible on close inspection.

Marks on the underside are "Sterling," the Kerr "mace" emblem, and model number "386."
