Art Nouveau Sterling Silver Wine Carafe c1904Item Description A beautifully hand-wrought, rare, sterling silver wine carafe Total weight is 476 grams Overall very good estate condition Classic Art Nouveau design & inspiration Fantastic vine handle terminating in a period Art Nouveau mask This lovely carafe stands approximately 10 1/2 inches tall T are 5 perfectly crisp Hallmarks which include the following: a makers mark "Tostrrup" (yes, t is an extra r) the number 1864, two individual stamped symbols (seperate stamps for origin and metal composition?) and what appears to be a date letter To confuse the matter of dating this piece, one of the monograms includes a 1904 year inscription (a date that obviously conflicts with the 1864 stamp on the underside base) T are monograms in two locations (very light script on the front and back) A time-enhanced, buttery-smooth silver patina assumed from proper care and gentle hand-polishing A few small dings around the perimeter of the lower half of the carafe (does not detract from the absolute beauty this piece) Light tarnish
