Faun or Satyr and Nymph Sterling Silver Tray by Mauser
I know there is a mythological story going on here, but I haven't been able to identify it. In any case, this is a superb cast sterling silver tray by Mauser. The center of the tray has a faun or satyr dude. He has a man's face and upper body but goat legs. There are also 2 naked people, one appears to be a child, the other a woman. It looks like the woman has scissors and may be up to no good. There is an amazing landscape background behind the figure. Look carefully and see a river going off into the distance and a tree. The sides of the tray have grapes and vines. This piece is beautifully detailed and 3-d. There is a tiny hole between the nymph and faun, by his face. It is only visible when the piece is held up to the light. Otherwise this piece is in extremely good condition. It measures 6" by 3 1/2" and sits on 4 little ball shaped feet.
