Description


This magnificent antique German sterling silver charger plate has an oval form.


The surface of the charger plate is embellished with an exceptional embossed and chased decorated scene depicting an elaborate and intense battle with a walled city to the background, all below the engraved inscription 'A gift to a friend 1820'.


The raised rounded border of this decorative platter/plate is encompassed with pinstruck swirling ornamentation.


The broad border of this exceptional example of continental silverware is embellished with impressive chased decorated lounging figural ornamentations, each accented with either a notable or nature inspired accessory; it can be determined that such a frieze of figures relates to a historical event or folklore.


The decoration to the border incorporates large scrolling leaf designs in addition to interlacing fruiting vine ornamentation, all on a matte background.


The rim of the piece is encompassed with an applied thread decorated border.


The hallmarks struck to the underside and rim of this magnificent silver plate include:

Maker's marks: I+D (untraced)

Assay scrape: Zickzack line (Tremolierstrich)

Hanau marks: Untraced*

Importer's mark: TG (Thomas Glaser)

Silver quality/purity mark: lion passant (sterling, 925/100)

* Hanau 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.
