Full Description

Set of enamelled bowl mounts (from Hanging bowl). "They consist of four escutcheons, three having had hooks attached to their frames and the fourth belonging to the bottom of the bowl; a bronze ring showing traces of wear inside and evidently belonging to one of the chain hooks of the bowl; narrow strips of bronze with sunk red enamel (mostly wanting) in a fret pattern; and silver strips notched at their edges that apparently surrounded the escutcheons within the frame of bronze" (S1)(S2)(S3).
