This exceptional antique German 800 standard silver centrepiece / dish has been realistically modelled in the form of a swan.
The body of the dish has been embellished with embossed and chased decoration reproducing the fine details of the swan's plumage and anatomical features.
The centrepiece is fitted with the original frosted glass liner; the shape of the glass parallels the swan's wings.
The interior of the silver and glass dish retains the original gilding.
Such dishes with paralleling-shaped glass liners are becoming increasingly difficult to locate.
