Overall: 10.2 cm (4 in.)
Gift of the Hiller-Borneman Collection 2021.159

While Fabergé mainly produced objects with historicist ornamentation drawing upon earlier periods, the firm was also attentive to the latest fashions in the European decorative arts. This silver bowl is executed in the Art Nouveau style popular at the time. Its indented body and the asymmetrical handle convey a sense of liquid movement, accentuated by the undulating reflections on the silver surface.
