Elegant antique to vintage French PUIFORCAT hallmarked 18k gold on sterling silver "vermeil" 5.25" hors d'oeuvre, condiment, sugar sifter or muffineer, a serving utensil with ornate pierced or reticulated & gold plated vermeil bowl, acanthus & bead festooned pattern and wonderful condition! A fine old piece, this one bears the post-1838 French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number "1" within the mark means it's in .950 silver (95% pure and higher than the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). The silversmith mark is, of course, for the world renowned Maison Puiforcat (EP for Emile Puiforcat), maker to royalty. A single yes but as elegant as can be and this one will be an easy fit into an existing fine sterling silver table setting. Don't miss it!
Very good to excellent condition. Some faint surface scuffs possible and some slight wear to the vermeil plating but, as you can see, there's no damage, no repairs. See pictures for weight and measurements.
