A wonderful antique Continental Silver Goat draw Chariot with revolving wheels. Small child or cupid with whip, at the helm of the gilted interior of the Chariot. The Horned Goat is remarkably detailed and the Chariot beautifully decorated with embossed flowers on each side. The cart attaching the Chariot to the Goat is well observed and secure. This miniature measures 3" in length and stands 1 3/4" high. Tremendous workmanship and absolutely stunning at any angle. Probably Dutch in origin; there is a hallmark 'N' on the back of the Chariot and possibly minute hallmarks on one of the wheels (these much too small to tell even under a 10X loop and much too small for our camera to capture, even when enlarged on the screen). The antique Solid Silver Miniature Horned Goat pulling a Chariot with Cherub has substantial heft and weighs approximately 51.8 grams. Upon close inspection with enlarged photographs, did we noticed the Goat is missing one hoof on his back leg. Some oxidation in hard to reach areas. The photographs show this exceptional piece very well and even better in person. The quality of the workmanship when viewed in person is unsurpassed. The photographs were taken with and without a camera flash.
