Robert Emig Products, Pensylvania, USA
Cast iron Pedestal Compote Bowl
Features four Mythological Roman or Greek god and goddess scenes surrounded by ornate filigree scrolls and flowers.
The scenes are fantastically detailed with Neptune on his throne, a goddess riding on a lion fish, a goddess riding on a dolphin and a god riding on a dragon fish. The outer band of the bowl continues the scroll filigree with a flying dragon at each intersection of the scenes.
Flat head screw secures the base to the compote
Guesstimating age would be around the 50's-60's
Visible signs of minor typical corrosion give it a lovely patina
The numbers 1236 C and the number 1 on oppossing side can be found on the underside of the compote.
1236B can barely be seen on the underside of the base
