The Kirk Stieff Silver Repousse sterling hollowware design is a beautiful example of the chased repousse style that became widely popular in nineteenth-century America. “Repousse” is an ancient form of metalworking, where artisans hammer a design into the inside surface of a piece of metal, so that the ornamentation appears in relief on the outside. Most often the design is then worked from the outside with a pointed or patterned punch. This technique, called “chasing,” sharpens and defines the repousse ornamentation and enhances the three-dimensional effect of the design. Some of the best-known pieces of this type of metalwork date from antiquity.
