Wonderful antique miniature Continental Silver Maypole with a climbing Winged Cupid. The detail and gesture of the Winged Cupid is remarkable. The piece dates to the 19th Century. Marked on the underside of the exquisite base is the 800 mark. At the top of the May Pole is an open-wire canopy with two dangly, movable heart charms. Perhaps Cupid is reaching for those. The antique Solid Silver May Pole with the base stands 4 1/4" tall. The base itself measure 2 1/8" x 1 5/8". It is in very good condition, note some areas of oxidation. Has an approximate weight of 28 grams. Shows well in the photographs though even more beautiful in person. It is an absolutely wonderful, playful and fine piece with exceptional workmanship. The photographs were taken with and without a camera flash.
