Italian Sterling Silver Car Models / Table Ornaments - Vintage 1976


A fine and impressive pair of vintage Italian sterling silver table ornaments realistically modelled in the form of cars; an addition to our ornamental silverware collection

SKU A8052

These impressive vintage Italian cast sterling silver table ornaments have been realistically modelled in the form of two early 20th century automobiles.

The first piece reflects the style of an Opel Cottereau and the second can be associated with an Opel Torpedo.

Each of these silver car models has been embellished with details reproducing the fine definition of the vehicle's body work and fabric features, in addition to the manufacturers badge 'Opel' to the front grille.

These cars are fitted with axles to the underside allowing the functional wheels to rotate.

The hallmarks struck to the underside of each piece include:

Maker's registration: 1 AR (UNO A ERRE ITALIA, Arezzo)

Silver quality/purity mark: 925 (sterling, 925/1000)

Importer's mark: IJ (untraced)

Import mark: London, England

Import date mark: B (1976)

These vintage silver car models are a very good gauge of silver, excellent quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The cast decoration is all very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of each chassis are all very clear.

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