French Victorian Sterling Silver Place Card Holders Putti/cherub 6 Pc Set/lot For Sale
Available for sale or BUY IT NOW we have a Set/Lot of Six (6) Antique Victorian Sterling Silver Putti/Cherub Place Card Holders that I believe were made in France. The beautifully formed cherubs are performing tasks such as hunting, gathering plants and herbs carrying a large dish and tray and a carafe of wine and glass, there are also two musician Cherubs with different background/holders that may be from a different set. I purchased these at an estate sale, and I cannot be certain, as there is no pictorial guide to French Hallmarks that I could find, but the the tiny initials on the bottom read "B.B." and the pictorial deception of what appears to be a tree or shrub, seems to be the hallmark described on the Online encyclopedia of hallmarks under French makers marks 1875-1914. There it lists a "B.B" Bernard Buissas whose hallmark is "Un Buisson" - a tree or shrub. (www dot 925-1000dot com/Ffrench_makers_B.html). Measurements - Bases measure 1 5/16" L x 1 5/16" W, Each Cherub place holder with the tree foliage background is 2 1/2" H, the Musician Cherubs are 2 5/8" H.
