A magnificent, fine, impressive and large antique cast German sterling silver table owl; part of our continental ornamental silverware collection
This magnificent and large antique cast German silver table ornament has been realistically modelled in the form of a owl.
This antique silver owl ornament has been embellished with fine details reproducing the plumage, in addition to the bird’s anatomical features.
The surface of this exceptional example of antique silverware retains the original gilding; this has worn with age in a sympathetic fashion to an aesthetically pleasing mellow colour.
