Here is a spectacular Black Starr & Frost Sterling Swan center piece. This is a company in silver and jewelry making since the 1800's. This is a piece which was made before the silver manufacturing joined Gorham.
The swan is 9.2 ounces of Sterling Silver. It is 8" from beak to tail and 6" tall 4 1/2" wide and 8" long on the bottom. This is a solid Sterling example. The ones made with partial crystal on the bottom are much more common.
The detail is outstanding. Look not only are the feathers well appreciated but it even has that little knot of the top of the beak. This is a medium sized center piece, there are others in the 12" range. But gorgeous and a special piece to enhance your table.
