A handsome antique sterling silver pedestal bowl of circular form with half ribbed body and egg and dart border. Excellent quality and heavy gauge silver. This form is very similar to the Warwick Vase shape. The cast wrythen side carrying handles are embellished with vine leaf and grape ornament making it, together with its weight and campana form, very suitable for use as a small size wine cooler. Hand engraved to the front is an armorial within a shield, and to the reverse there is a crest of a leopard. Weight 1646 grams, 52.9 troy ounces. Height 19.5 cms. Diameter 19.5 cms. Spread 29.5 cms. London 1810. Maker Emes & Barnard.


This important silver vase is in very good condition with no damage or restoration. The hand engraved armorial and crest are still crisp and complete (difficult to photograph because they are engraved on a curved piece of silver). Stamped with a full and clear set of English silver hallmarks. Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.

Maker Information

Maker: Rebecca Emes & Edward Barnard I

This old established manufacturing silversmith business was originally established by Anthony Nelme c.1680 passing to Francis Nelme on his death in 1722. Thomas Whipham took over the business in 1739, passing it to his son Thomas Whipham jr in 1756 who took into partnership Charles Wright. Henry Chawner took over the business in 1786; Chawner, who had been Edward Barnard I’s and Barnard’s son Edward's master, became foreman of the firm. Chawner retired in 1796 and John Emes became a partner, maintaining Edward Barnard II as manager. Emes died in 1808 and his widow Rebecca took as partner Edward Barnard II. Rebecca Emes withdrew in 1829 and Edward Barnard I became the proprietor with his son Edward Barnard II, John Barnard and William Barnard, trading as Edward Barnard & Sons. After the retirement of Edward Barnard I the firm was continued by Edward Barnard II (1846-1851), John Barnard I (1846-1868), William Barnard (1846), Edward Barnard III (1868), Walter Barnard (1868-1903), John Barnard II (1868-1903), Michael Barnard (1896-1903), Stanley Barnard (1896-1903) and Robert Dubcock (1896).
