At Nelson & Nelson Antiques you will find a wonderful selection of silver overlay objects that are exceptionally beautiful and collectible. Silver overlay, a technique of depositing a layer of sterling silver over a glass or ceramic body, was mastered by American silversmiths in the late nineteenth century and demonstrates exceptional quality and craftsmanship. The silver overlay technique was prized for its ability to capture delicate and naturalistic floral designs that express the characteristics of the popular Art Nouveau style. Available in a variety of forms including vases, pitchers, decanters, and large and small perfume bottles, antique silver overlay makes a distinctive gift. Paired with clear, green or red glass, silver overlay decoration provides stunning contrast and a highly sophisticated look for your decorating needs. Beautiful examples of sterling silver overlay are one-of-a-kind objects to be treasured.
