Favourite Item
These fine antique Victorian cast sterling silver table ornament is realistically modelled in the form of a stag and a submissively kneeling doe.

These cast sterling silver deer are embellished with chased decoration reproducing the detail of their features and fur coat.

The push fit deer and stag models are fitted to the original antique mahogany plinth.

The plinth is fitted with green baize to the underside.

The models have integrated screw fittings and are struck with part hallmarks, suggesting they may originally have been attached to a larger item of Victorian silverware such as a centrepiece.
