Antique1902 Vincenz Carl Dub VCD 800 Silver Austrian Art Nouveau Tulip Bowl. Here is an antique dated 1902 fine presentation 800 silver footed tulip bowl or tray. It has the VCD and Diana head mark for Vincenz Carl Dub of Vienna Austria. The Diana head mark has a " 3 " on the left for 800 silver and a " A " on the right indicating Vienna, Austria.
The bowl is monogramed in center with what appears to be a " JB " but I can't tell for sure. On the bottom it is engraved, " Erinnerung an Graz/ 15/5 - 20/5 / 1902 ". The bowl has been partly lightly polished but will still need a good detailed polishing to look its best. I will leave that to the new owner. 8 inches wide by 14 inches long handle to handle.
It sets up on 4 legs. It is about 2 3/16 inches tall at the side and 3 inches tall at the handles. It weighs 399 grams or somewhat over 12 Troy ounces. A very unique piece from a well noted Austrian silversmith.I don't think there are many of these.
