Superb antique French .800 silver cruet stand housing two beautiful wheel cut glass decanters. Quite unique to this set are the two decanters, which feature a vibrant cobalt blue cut to clear and topped by faceted stoppers. The decanters rest within a stunning boat shaped stand, crafted entirely of .800 silver. Of superb quality and craftsmanship. With reticulated tracery decorating the stand and the two decanter holders. Hallmarked with the French Minerve 2nd standard mark used from 1838 to 1919, which depicts the goddess Minerva with a number 2 beside her to denote a silver content of 800/1000. All parts are hallmarked, located on the very base of the stand and tracery edge, additionally found on the two decanter and two stopper holders.
