Antique early-20th Century pair of exceptionally large and fine German solid silver figures, each 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 Gothic arches, the casting is extremely detailed, each figure featuring different details.

This is one of the most impressive, detailed and magnificent pair of solid silver figures, each over 40cm tall, combined they weight 2750 grams.

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. These particular pair are modelled after the statues of King Arthur of Britain and Theoderic the Great, King of the Ostrogoths, both statues designed by the great artist Albrecht Durer.
