This beautiful Bonbonnier is wholly made of the finest quality solid Sterling Silver .950 purity, consists of deep bowl with two side handles, domed lid and oval shaped serving dish. The decoration is in gorgeous Neo-Classical Style Rococo revival, finely embellished with scroll borders on boldly beautiful gadroon body, accented by floral. The uniquely twisted cast handles on the sides of bowl and top of lid. The under plate is securely attached to the pedestal base (removable, for cleaning purpose.)
This Bonbonnier is great for use but also a fabulous piece for display - with its modernist shape, it would make a stunning addition to both traditional and modern interior. Excellent condition.
Hallmarked 1. French Minerva No.1 mark on each pieces, which guaranteed .950 purity sterling silver, used in Paris since 1838.
