Wonderful antique French Louis-Philippe era sterling silver 13.5 oil & vinegar cruet stand or caddy, Aesthetic styling with ribbed center handle & bordering, large ball feet and two wheel cut crystal decanters! Elegant, I just love these old French silver pieces and this one leaves very, very little to be desired.
950 silver content 95% pure silver and higher than the. 925 standard for "sterling" silver. The silversmith marks are there but partially illegible and I've not been able to find a reference for them. There is one post-1838 Minerve or Minerva hallmark so the piece must date to 1838, during the transition from Michel-Ange to Minerva.
Two thick & heavy crystal claret style decanters with handles & hexagonal shaped or cut stoppers. An exceptional piece, don't miss it!A small nip or two is possible to the decanters and/or stoppers but no large chips, no cracks or repairs there. One of the stoppers appears to be a custom made replacement, with the same top shaping but no faceted stem and fits but is not'snug' like the other original is. A minor dimple or two possible but no large dents, damage or repairs to note. The piece stands steady but may have a slight bend at one or two corners, just above the ball feet. The silver alone weighs 22.6 troy ounces or 704 grams. Image Hosting by Ruby Lane. Icon here or above to see more of our inventory, offerings and venues.
