Vintage Nan Swid Silver Plated Three Piece On-Ice Bowl


This gorgeous three piece set includes one bowl, a tray insert, and a glass bowl insert. Two of the three pieces could be used independently of the others. An ideal use would be for an hors d’oeuvre that should remain cold. Imagine: ice in the bowl, shrimp arranged on the tray, a cocktail sauce in the glass bowl. Or, better, the elegance and beauty of caviar presented in this refined vessel. Marked Nan Swid with sticker “Made in China” this bowl was created prior to 1982 when Nan Swid and Addie Powell left Knoll International and founded SwidPowell.

Known for producing objects with form and function, SwidPowell commissioned pieces from internationally known architects. Architects included Richard Meier, Robert A.M. Stern, Frank Gehry and other design luminaries. The wares they produced ranged from silver to porcelain, candlesticks to tea pots.

The two pieces are silver plated, the third, glass. All pieces are in very good to excellent vintage condition.

Measurements: 10″ diameter x 4.75″ tall, glass bowl 3.5″ x 2.25″
