DESCRIPTION

Antique early-20th Century pair of large and fine German solid silver figures, each parcel gilt and modelled as a knight in full suits of armour, carved face beneath a hinged visor, one sporting a sword and the other an axe, both holding a shield applied and chased with armorials.

The two statues stand on a large embellished pedestal base with foliage, a lion holding a shield on each corner. The knights are inspired by the Emperor Maximilian I's monument in the Hofkirche in Innsbruck, one of the most important series of life-size bronze statues of the 16th century.

Each base is Hallmarked German silver (800+ standard), Maker's mark probably for Vereinigte Silberwarenfabriken, Hanau, year 1900's.
