Antique Silver Sweetmeat Dishes.



Item Ref



Continental silver suite of three sweetmeat dishes; comprising of one larger dish and two smaller identical dishes. These fine cast dishes feature a putto astride a dolphin on a shell, and carrying a horn. The upswept dolphin's tail supports a gilt interiored shell at the top to form the dish. Typical subjects of this period, which copied the styles of the early 18th century Rococo Naturalism fashion, which had Meissonnier and Paul de Lamerie as exponents.
Not to be confused with some of the lighter weight goods manufactured in this period, these are great quality pieces, beautifully made. Stunning!
Dutch. c.1895.
Height of largest dish 14.5cm.
Height of smaller dishes 11cm. each.
