Antique German - Hanau - 800 Silver - Marie Antoinette- Louis Xvi Oval Tray For Sale
Offered for your offerding is an elegant &exquisitely detailed late 19th century German solid silver reticulated oval tray in the Louis XVI taste, circa 1890's, by famed Hanau silversmiths Georg Roth & Company.Georg Roth & Company of Hanau (1891-1919)produced a fine range of solid silver products in both sterling & 800 silver, and were noted for pieces with elaborate piercing, floral swags, andmedallion cameo busts.
Thisfinely made oval footedtray with handles features a broad pierced border decorated with cast swags, and oval portrait bust medallions in relief. The interior bottom of the tray features a cast double-cameo portraitin relief of Queen Marie Antoinette & King Louis XVI of France, separated by a crown, shield with three fleur de lys, and surmounted by a ribboned laurel swag. The scroll decorated handles terminate in afanciful ram's head at either end, whilethe background on the tray bottomhas been hand-chased to provide a textured back-drop for the ornamental relief.
The tray is hallmarked with typical Hanau 'prestige marks'on the front bottom portion, justto the lower left side ofthe cameo of Marie Antoinette, but they are very difficult to see:hallmarks "A", "P", and a fleur de lys - each surmounted by a crown, in imitation of French 18th century marks. Thehallmarks arealmost completely obscuredby the textured background chasing, but we have done our best to photograph the area where they are located. Guaranteed to be minimum .800 silver fineness.The piece is free of dents, dings, and cracks. Light surface scratching & patina commesurate with age & use.Please see our photos for your own assessment.
