Description


These exceptional vintage Spanish sterling silver table ornaments have been realistically modelled in the form of a brass and string band/quintet.


The vintage musical figurines are attired in long coats with waistcoats and/or shirts accented by rough knotted ties, all accompanied with casual trousers; the trousers to one character bears patches to the knees and a walking stick suspended from his coat pocket.


All the men are playing their instruments apart from one hatless character who has an elevated arm; it is believed this man is conducting the performing quartet.


Each musician features a different brass or string instrument: violin, cello, tuba, French horn and trumpet.


These models are embellished with chased decoration replicating the details of the fabric, instruments and facial features.


The figurines are surmounted to circular swept weighted bases which are ornamented with a paving stone design to the upper plateau.
