A VERY FINE PAIR OF SOLID SILVER PEDESTAL COMPORTS WITH ORIGINAL ETCHED GLASS BOWLS.
THIS VERY BEAUTIFUL PAIR WERE MADE BY THE WELL RESPECTED GERMAN SILVERSMITH WILKENS UND SOHNE,IN BREMEN,GERMANY,AROUND 1880.THIS COMPANY WAS FOUNDED IN 1810.

THE SUPPORTING BASES ARE OF HALLMARKED SILVER AND ARE ROCCOCO IN STYLE.THEY FEATURE A PUTTO TO EACH ONE,HOLDING THE BOWLS.THE BASEES ARE VERY FINELY WORKED,IN A NATURALISTIC MANNER,WITH EARTH LIKE APPEARANCE,AND A VERY ATTRACTIVE CIRCULAR PIECE AROUND THE FACE AND CHEST OF THE PUTTI.
I LIKE THIS PAIR IN PARTICULAR,AS THEY ARE FITTING FOR A MORE MODERN TABLE SETTING THAN SOME OF THE LARGER ONES.
THANK YOU FOR VISITING CORNUCOPIA ANTIQUES.PRICES ARE NEGOTIABLE.
ADDENDUM:THE WEIGHT GIVEN IS SILVER CONTENT ONLY.
