ANTIQUE VERY RARE SET OF 12 CHRISTOFLE SILVER PLATE SKEWERS FIGURAL FRANCE 1880
Antique, EXTRA RARE!! set of 12 French Christofle skewers / brochette - circa late 19th century.
All are marked with Christofle's diamond-shaped hallmark with a balance and 'CC' dating the set to between 1862-1890 - each also hallmarked with 'CHRISTOFLE'
I have found many various models offered now or sold in the past, by dealers and auctions but none of these quality and specific models
Please note, for example, the one with the speared fish, the elaborate prawn / shrimp, the goose and the rooster, the dolphin, the bird, sardines, the knight's helmet with figural visor and more
Exceptional detail all around with the fish's scaling, feathering on the birds and fine finish with great silver luster
All are in excellent condition for the age - no dents, repairs or losses to silver - Please view all detailed pictures
They measure from 23.6 cm long (rooster) to 30 cm long (prawn) - mostly in the 27-28 cm range - total combined weight is 496.7 grams
