Italian Silver and Cranberry Coloured Glass'Swan' Centrepiece - Antique. This fine antique Italian 800 standard cast silver centrepiece/sweet dish has been realistically modelled in the form of a swan. The body of the dish has been embellished with chased decoration reproducing the fine details of the swan's feathers and features. The centrepiece is fitted with a removable shaped cranberry coloured glass liner. The hallmarks struck to the underside of the base include.Maker's mark:Flli Coppini, symbol mark (Fratelli Coppini). Italian silversmiths rarely submitted pieces for optional official hallmarking. It was the norm for silver items to be marked only with the'800' (purity degree 800/1000), sometimes coupled with the silversmith's hallmark. This antique centrepiece is an extremely good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent condition.
The hallmarks struck to the underside of the base are clear. Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of antique Italian silverware. Height to top of head.
