Notes & Condition Report
Monteiths were designed for cooling drinking glasses
(The glasses would hang by the foot into the bowl, which was filled with iced water)
Chinoiserie (Oriental) decoration was first seen on English silver in the last half of the 17th century
The detachable collar can be removed and then used as a punch bowl
Also very useful as fruit bowl etc. or as an ice bucket and would hold two bottles nicely
The collar is very tight fitting and can be a little tricky to put on and remove
Excellent decoration
Good gauge and weight
Good hallmarks and condition
Without damage or repair
