Additional information

Lightly tapered candy dish in silver and crystal. The rim is ornamented with an openwork geometric frieze, and the paunch features a sculpted silver balustrade vase and two birds standing facing each other on either side of the vase. The birds are eating from the grape vines that are spilling out from the vase. The dish’s two handles are decorated with dog’s heads with balls in their mouths, framing the composition. The lid is topped with stylized palm branches that form a circle to serve as a handle. The base of the dish is decorated with a frieze of stylized palmettes and rests on four clawed feet.  Silversmith OB for Bougeois or Bourguoin imprinted in 1819. Circa 1820-1830.
