Always love to find unusual pieces for the collector of rare fine French sterling. Such as this pair of Louis XVI place holders, by renowned French master-smith Emile Puiforcat. These are a superb confection: asymmetric shield form bodies lush with finely chased rocialles and scrolling acanthus. Each weighs 45 grams, standing 3.5" tall, 3" wide and 1" deep. Condition is very good save for one flaw. The easel back of one of the pieces has a severed leg as well as a repair; i.e., the easel back has been re-affixed to the body (see photograph #6). This does not affect function. Nevertheless, if the pieces are planned for routine use, a solder might be a preventive plan. There are interlaced script monograms which, per usual, I can't figure out. My guess is "GF".

Marks: the maker's punch for Emile Puiforcat and the .950 sterling guarantee. Circa late 1800's early 1900's.
