Elegant antique to vintage antique French PUIFORCAT vermeil 18k gold on sterling silver 2pc egg cup with matching under plate and both in marvelous condition! The best egg in your life, well, at least the serving pieces should make it seem so. Thick, heavy sterling silver, cup and plate bear the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number "1" within those marks means they're both in .950 silver (95% pure and higher than the .925 standard for "sterling" silver) Virtually dripping gold and both bearing the maker mark of the House of PUIFORCAT (Emile Puiforcat), one of the most world renowned French silversmiths, maker to royalty and this piece is definitely fit for a king.
Excellent condition. Just as you see them, no dents, damage or repairs and not even any wear or loss to the gold plating. See pictures for weight and measurements.
