We'll be sending out sale notices and special deals to our'Favorites' customers. Fabulous & rare antique French PUIFORCAT hallmarked. 800 (nearly sterling) silver & swirl cut glass cordial sized espresso or liqueur cups with ornate pierced or reticulated silver handles & housing around the glass cup inserts and wonderful mascaron style Bacchus or North Wind figures!
Small, these are surely intended for liqueurs but could easily be a service for espresso if you wish. Russian style with the silver bases & handles and the glass inserts but very French in the ornate style consisting of pierced acanthus & scrolling vines, tendrils & foliage. Opposite the handles is that fabulous grotesque or mascaron figure morphing from acanthus and with all of the appearances of Bacchus perhaps. All bases bear the tiny French boar's head hallmark meaning they're in.
800 or better silver (80% pure and common in these delicate pieces for the added strength the lower silver content provides). The bases also with the tiny diamond shaped silversmith mark, "EP" for Emile Puiforcat. The House of Puiforcat long lauded for only the finest of fine, makers to royalty and today one of the most sought after of French makers.On a side note, Puiforcat is now owned by Hermes, Paris, another name known the world over. All in wonderful condition and, as you can see, with immense visual appeal!
Very good to excellent condition. No chips or cracks to any of the glass inserts. One cup has a small'push' to the flared base but it stands steady. No breaks, losses, damage or repairs to the silver filigree style cup holders.
