SOLD - Sterling Silver Model of a Hippopotamus - Contemporary 2011


This fine contemporary cast sterling silver ornament has been realistically modelled in the form of a hippopotamus, often shortened to 'hippo'.

This piece has been embellished with chased decoration reproducing the fine details of the hippopotamus' facial features.

AC Silver rarely offers modern silver items, but the opportunity to find such popular and collectable subjects in antique form is very limited.

This fine hippopotamus is high quality, and as such, meets the exacting standards demanded by AC Silver - for this reason it has been included in the AC Silver inventory.

Date: 2011


This contemporary table ornament is an exceptional gauge of silver, fine quality and in exceptional condition.
Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the hippopotamus' body are all very clear.

Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of this contemporary piece of silverware.


Height 4.8cm/1.8"
