SOLD - German Silver 'Cat' Sugar Box - Antique Circa 1880

Description


This fine German silver antique sugar box has been realistically modelled in the form of a cat.


The surface of this piece of continental silver is embellished with finely chased decoration reproducing the details of the cat's face and fur.


This impressive antique sugar box retains the original push fit cover/head.


This piece was originally silver gilt - this has worn with age in a sympathetic fashion to a mellow colour.


Condition


This antique German sugar box is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent condition.

The chased decoration is very sharp.

The hallmarks struck to the surface of the interior rim of the collar include unidentified hallmarks which may be pseudo-hallmarks often used on Hanau silver.

The tremolierstrich (zigzag line) used for silver assaying is clearly visible to the underside of this item.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of German silverware.
