Bowl with Turkey


Description Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This bowl illustrates both the exuberant floral decoration and the technique of twisted-wire filigree associated with Usolsk enameled silver. The image of the North American turkey might have been derived from a Nuremberg emblem book (a book containing images with accompanying texts).
