This intricately decorated miniature furniture would grace any collection. Silver doll's furniture with fine repoussé decoration, consisting of a table and two-chair set. Late 19th Century, probably German, possibly Dutch - matching 'pseudo' marks, test as silver (probably 800 standard). Table 7x4x4cm, chair 6x2.5x2cm. Weight 59g The table is decorated with a horseman in the foreground, a second horseman, a man with a walking stick, a large tree and varous buildings in the background icluding a church, houses and a windmill. It has a scalloped frieze decorated with scrollwork. Its four legs and crossed stretcher are formed in a twist pattern. Each chair has a grotesque mask to both seat and back, which are further decorated with scrollwork. Their cresting rails are surmounted by a cherub head with spread wings and they have cast, solid, square, reeded legs. Each piece of the set has matching 'pseudo' silver marks. I have not been able to identify them specifically, but they are probably from Hanau (Germany), but possibly from Holland (If anybody recognises the marks from the photos - i would welcome the information). These 'pseudo' silver marks were unregistered marks used to imitate the antique, mostly in the 19th and early 20th Century - most famously in Hanau (Germany). See 925.com for a good explanation.
SW15Collectables has clarified that the 19th Century Silver Miniature / Doll's Table & Two-Chair Set (LA206229) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being ca 1890
Excellent condition consistent with age and use. The observations below are intended for completeness and transparency. There is nothing material that detracts from aesthetics or function. No holes, splits, tears or material deformation of the silver. Two of the legs are detached from the stretcher, but this is unnoticeable as they wedge firmly in place. See also photos
