Head of Minerve 1 st titre for 950/1000 French sterling silver guarantee.

An exceptional set from the point of view of its design as well as the quality of the engraving. The sophistication of this design and the open work handles are of particularly fine quality. The set included four pieces for eight guests. The stems and handles are heavily pierced and have masks on both sides with stylized foliate decoration in the manner of Louis XIV. Called "Mascaron", this one of the "Fantaisie" patterns found in the catalogue of the Maison Puiforcat. Its manufacture would have necessitated many more hours work than usual.
