Victorian silver plate designers often combined elements of Gothic, Rococo, and Italian Renaissance styles with Greek and Egyptian Revival influences to create contemporary interpretations of historical styles. Items were decorated with many motifs including floral patterns, animals, ancient Egyptian figures, and Roman goddesses. In this fruit bowl by the Middletown Silver Company, two Renaissance putti figures sit atop a barge adorned with shells inset with smaller putti at the base.
