About this item

Antique early 20th century Italian magnificent solid silver group of sculptures on stone bases, each realistically modelled as mythological figures, including embraced Mermaids, two Centaurs, a Triton and a Nymph.

The quality of the sculptures is very fine, heavy and well modelled, possibly made by one of the Avolio brothers (Luigi & Eugenio Avolio, Naples, active 1876-1930), a very important silversmiths specializing in impressive sculptural pieces inspired to Classical art. Hallmarked Italian silver (mark used 1872-1933), its very rare to find Italian silver of this period to be hallmarked as silversmiths were not required to have their work assayed and would often just sign the silver.

Wear consistent with age and use.
