This exceptional vintage cast Dutch silver table ornament has been realistically modelled in the form of a pheasant hen.
This vintage silver pheasant ornament has been embellished with fine details reproducing the plumage, in addition to the bird's anatomical features.
The Dutch hallmarks struck to the underside of the pheasant's tail include:
Maker's mark: CtM (untraced)
Silver quality/purity mark: Z II (.835, 835/1000)
This exceptional Dutch silver pheasant ornament is the finest of its type you could hope to acquire.
