This exceptional pair of antique German silver table ornaments has been realistically modelled in the form of a duke and duchess wearing ducal coronets.

The armoured duke ornament features a shield in his dexter hand whilst grasping his sword with the other.

The spiked shield is embellished with an impressive coat of arms depicting quarterly, I a towered castle, II four pallets, III party per pale fleur-de-lys and five bendlets bordered and IV two bedlets charged with six coronets; overall an inescutcheon charged with a crowned eagle displayed.

The Duke and Duchess are dressed in luxurious floral garments embellished with chased decoration replicating the fabric's patterns and textures.

The Duchess is further ornamented with carved hands.

Each base has a square cut cornered form and is ornamented with impressive band of pierced undulating floral and leaf ornamentation.
