Beautifully Ornate Antique French Serviette Holder (silver 800)
It is full of beautiful Rococo design elements, leaves and berries, swags, silver beading, a pretty shell to either side, lots of the designs have been carved with open work surrounds and the different sections are set at differing heights, giving a pretty 3D definition to the piece. It is C. 1830 and made of 800 silver. Near the base, there are four ornate sides, three of the sides have lost the bead on the end, only one remains intact and there is a tiny split on the handle, neither of these is at all noticeable because the design is so busy. The holder is in very good condition for such an early item, it is a delightful display piece, it could even sit atop a photograph, perhaps?
The length is just over 4" and the widest part measures just over 1 1/4".
