For sale is a wonderful bronze covered bowl made by Carl Sorensen of Philadelphia, Pa. A well known figure in the Arts and Crafts movement at the turn of the century, Carl Sorensen later went on to work as a designer for Tiffany Studios, New York and Louis Comfort Tiffany. The covered bowl is a nice cabinet size as it stands 2 3/4" tall and has a diameter of just under 5 11/16".
This covered bowl has a round shape with a round lit. The lid is further decorated with decorative copper color Grape and Leaf round disc that sits over a counter sunk area of the lid. There are concentric rings running around the edge of the lid. This lid is perforated as you can get your fingers through the opening in the disc. This also acts as a handle to lift the lid off the bowl. The inside displays a beautiful copper brass patina with a few areas of green patina staining. The green patina with brown highlights is very vibrant and extremely well executed.
This covered bowl is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks or dings to the metal. The top lip is nice and even. The bowl is signed on the underside bottom. It has the script impressed signature mark "Carl Sorensen" along with the "CS Bronze" impressed emblem.
Purchase with confidence as this compote will enhance any Arts and Crafts, Mission style decor. It will look outstanding on that Stickley bookcase and will work just wonderful with that matte green art pottery collection. This vase was made circa 1925-1930.
