Old Newberry Crafters Onc Hand Made Hammered Sterling Silver Bowl Shreve R Bean
OLD NEWBERRY CRAFTERS ONC HANDMADE HAMMERED STERLING SILVER BOWL SHREVE ROBERT BEAN This is a gorgeous hand fluted, hand hammered, handmade heavy sterling silver bowl by Robert Bean, a Master Silversmith who worked for Old Newberry Crafters of Newberryport, MA. It was made in 1974 for Shreve, Crump and Low Co. The bowl is marked HAND FLUTED and has a hand hammered finish. There are12 joined panels of silver, each with a rounded top, which are gathered to form the bowl. The bowl itself is perched on a round graduated base that gives the bowl a Revere look. The bowl measure 7" across and 3" high and weighs a whopping 13.2 ounces. This is a dazzling work of art and handcrafted sterling silver items of this quality will probably never be made again, as most of the companies who did this kind of work have closed their doors and the Craftsmen are no longer with us. Robert Bean used a castle as his personal signature for ONC and the bowl also carries the ID number 227. The bowl is beautiful and shimmers from the hammering. It has several tiny dings and some scratching on the inside bottom from decades of use, all of which could be rectified if one were to choose to, but they blend very nicely with the hand hammered intent. I believe this piece to be of museum quality and a superlative of Silversmithing.
