DESCRIPTION

Antique early-20th Century Italian magnificent solid silver group of sculptures on stone bases, each realistically modelled as mythological figures, including embraced Mermaids, two Centaurs, a Triton and a Nymph.

The quality of the sculptures is very fine, heavy and well modelled, possibly made by one of the Avolio brothers (Luigi & Eugenio Avolio, Naples, active 1876-1930), a very important silversmiths specializing in impressive sculptural pieces inspired to Classical art. Hallmarked Italian silver (mark used 1872-1933), its very rare to find Italian silver of this period to be hallmarked as silversmiths were not required to have their work assayed and would often just sign the silver.
