THIS AUCTION FEATURES A VERY RARE PIECE BY THE FAMOUS PORTUGUESE MAKERS TOPAZIO CASQUINHA! I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANOTHER LIKE IT ANYW! THIS MAY BE A CUSTOM 1 OF A KIND PIECE THAT WAS COMMISSIONED TO BE MADE BY SOMEONE OBVIOUSLY VERY SPECIAL. IT HAS A LOT OF HAND MADE TOUCHES TO IT. VERY DETAILED AND MADE WITH A LOT OF CARE!
THIS IS A LARGE, HEAVY, SOLID ORNATE VANITY TRAY WEIGHING ABOUT 685 grams. THE SURFACE TOP AND BOTTOM IS HAND HAMMERED, ARTS & CRAFTS STYLE. THE PIERCED BORDER IS VERY ELABORATE AND DETAILED! (SEE PICTURES) THIS BEAUTIFUL HEAVY TRAY IS SUPPORTED BY 3 OF THE MOST GORGEOUS AND ORIGINAL FEET IMAGINABLE! THE DESIGN IS QUITE REMARKABLE! IT IS REMARKABLE BECAUSE A PERSON CAN LOOK AT THIS TRAY AND VISUALIZE IT BEING MADE IN ITS DIFFERENT STAGES.
I REALLY DO NOT KNOW MUCH ABOUT PORTUGUESE SILVER HALLMARKS, BUT I DID INCLUDE A PICTURE OF ALL 3 MARKS. FROM LEFT TO RIGHT, THE FIRST MARK READS: TOPAZIO CASQUINHA. THE MIDDLE HALLMARK IS THE: LETTER T NEXT TO A CROWN. THE LAST HALLMARK TO THE RIGHT IS THE LETTER J. POSSIBLY A DATE CODE.
THIS IS A VERY FINE HIGH END PIECE OF ARTS & CRAFTS STYLE, HAND HAMMERED STERLING SILVER I BELIEVE! AS MENTIONED EARLIER, I AM NOT AN EXPERT ON PORTUGUESE HALLMARKS, SO I CANNOT CONFIRM OR DENY IT BEING 925 STERLING SILVER. BASED ON MY RESEARCH, I HAVE FOUND THAT THESE PARTICULAR HALLMARKS ARE BEING SOLD AS STERLING SILVER.
THIS IS A VERY RARE OPPORTUNITY TO OWN A ONE OF THE MOST UNIQUE, ORNATE PIECES I HAVE SEEN MADE BY THIS MAKER! IT WILL MAKE A WONDERFUL ADDITION TO ANY VANITY, DRESSER OR COLLECTION! IT WILL ALSO MAKE A VERY SPECIAL GIFT!
