MANLY ANTIQUE CENTRE
This auction is for a Christofle silverplate
pierced or lace standing bird.
Christofle’s “Lumiere D’argent Collection”
comprises of many collectible animals, each
intricately pierced to look like silvered
lace and eyes made of black onyx beads.
Manufactured in France, “Lustrous Silver
Collection” pieces are coated with protective
varnish that helps to slow down the oxidization
process so your silver pieces remains
shiny for a longer period of time.
This lovely standing bird is fully hallmarked
Christofle with Christofle hallmarks
underneath which I tried to photograph but
they're hard to capture.
He has VIRTUALLY NO tarnish to his finish.
The black areas you can see in some of the
photos are reflections from the flash off
the angles of the shiny surface of this sparrow.
He is a little wobbly on his feet but this could
be rectified with a little careful manipualation.
If I was to rate him out of 10 (ie 10 being new)
I would rate him 9/10.
There is NO box.
He measures 8cm high, 4.7cm wide and 10.5cm tail to beak.SORRY,
