PAIR OF FLUTE CUT MALLET FORM ENGRAVED DECANTERS

Silesian, c1770

 

 

The tapering body with flute-cutting to the necks, the rim, neck and shoulders with gilt decoration,

the bodies emblazoned with a coat of arms within a florid leafy mantle sided by the initials F v. M,

above spearhead-cut base rims, floral and rim gilt faceted stoppers; polished pontils

 

Condition : Cutting and gilt in excellent condition; a few minor external scratches,

some very minor nicks around the collar; excellent base wear correct to period

 

The excellence of Bohemia and Silesian work was unsurpassed; some of its portraiture was superb and closely akin to the earlier Nuremberg work, but the general characteristic was a superfluity of conventional patterns, enclosing armorials or vignette portraits with a wealth or intricate detail and patient workmanship.  Its execution was o doubt facilitated by the hard metal of the soda-lime glasses used.
