Hand worked silver vase made in either Portugal or Brazil. Both of these countries use the 833 silver standard. This beautiful piece of solid silver is bud vase shaped, 9 inches tall, and hand crafted with formal leaf design running all the way up to the top. It is engraved all the way around, against a stippled background. Impressed marks on the pedestal: CASA CASTRO PRATA 833. (Silver standard of both Brazilian and Portuguese silversmiths). Skilled workmanship, arts and crafts look. I assume mid 20th century. Thick silver, weighing 3.6 oz. or 102 grams on my postal scale. A graceful bud vase for your ethnic silver collection.
