Description


These magnificent antique German gilt silver tazzas/centrepieces have a circular rounded form onto a decorative pedestal and domed spreading foot.


The surface of each tazza is embellished with a circular chased decorated artistic scene encircled with bead ornamentation.


One tazza depicts a putto* on a ram's back while those around point a staff and wear a headdress, the other displays a winged putto riding a scaled creature around three other chacters in a vast pool of water; each scene has a wide array of mountains to the background.


The raised rounded sides of these silver tazzas are encompassed with pierced decorated interlacing scrolling ornamentation accented with floral and berry motifs in addition to putto designs wrapped in fabric swags.


The sides are further embellished with appled bearded mask designs accented with a foliate headdress.


The rim of each impressive centrepiece is encompassed two bands of bead ornamentation.


The ornamental body of each tazza surmounts an exceptional pedestal constructed of two figures braced against each other and supporting the bowl on their shoulders.


The knops to the lower portion of the pedestals are encircled with bands of leaf festoons, featuring floral motifs.


The large circular domed spreading foot of each centrepiece is encircled with foliate festoon ornamentation, all on a textured background.


The surface of these exceptional German silver tazzas retain the original gilding.


The Hanau pseudo-marks to the surface of the wells are unidentified; pseudo-marks were not registered with an administrative office and no records exist to check them against determining an attributed identification to be a comparison or probability.


* In art and culture, a putto (plural: putti) is a chubby male child, usually nude and occasionally bearing wings.

These antique centrepieces are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

These footed salvers have little sign of use or wear; this is determined by the very sharp decoration and even wear of the original gilding.

The Hanau pseudo-marks struck to the surface of each centrepiece are clear in keeping with age.
