Hawkes Centerpiece with Gorham Sterling Silver Mount and Flower Frog-Grogan Co.

A rare and perhaps unique footed centerpiece most certainly made by Hawkes in Corning NY. in the Aesthetic Movement style.
The heavy crystal is decorated with copper wheel engraved birds and cherry blossoms and sits on an octagonal base. The bowl is mounted with a sterling silver three-handled rim decorated with engraved, matching cherry blossom motif. The removable sterling silver flower frog is made in two levels both functional and highly decorative with a complex pierced graphic pattern, topped with an acorn finial. The sterling silver was made by Gorham and it was retailed by Grogan Company from Pittsburgh. The base has some wear which obscures the signature. The workmanship speaks for itself nonetheless.
