A Fine and Rare low footed Silver Bowl, Trapani, Sicily C.1690


Detailed Description

A Fine and Rare low footed Silver Bowl with handles; town mark for Trapani, Sicily C.1690.

Many Spanish craftsmen settled in Trapani during the 15th and 16th centuries, and in our opinion this piece shows a definite Spanish influence; a special feature of the piece is the beautifully engraved picture inside the bowl of the Holy family.

The height of the piece is 5.6 cms, it is approximately 14cms in diameter across the handles and weighs 6 ounces approximately.
