About the item: Large , rare and unusual antique early 19th century Russian Christening bowl, c1820. The bowl is hand carved and decorated with metal embellishments and amazing Iconographic artwork. There is script carved into the bowl which I assume is an artists signature. Overall condition is good with minor surface wear/rubbing, some historical cracking and losses to the metal work - exactly as you would expect from a piece of this age.The wood has taken on a great colour/patina and the paintings have a lovely subtle fading that only comes with age and use. Please refer to the detailed photographs and feel free to contact me with any questions or if you would like to view the item. About me: I have been a passionate collector of antiques and collectables for over 30 years. My tastes are diverse and range from fine antique furniture, African , Indian and Asian ethnographic antiques and tribal art, to vintage slot machines - the more unusual and curious the better! I have travelled extensively throughout Africa, Asia, India, North America and much of my collection has been sourced in the Country of origin. After many years of collecting I decided to start to sell and have established'Curious Antiques' which specialises in a range of fine and more unusual antiques. These include fine furniture, religious items, militaria, amusement machines and one of the Countries best collections of African, Chinese, Eastern and Indian tribal and ethnographic antiques.
