This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver tazza has a circular form onto a figural pedestal and circular foot. The circular sterling silver tazza dish has a central shallow circular well encompassed with bands of thread decoration, to an intertwining, interlacing reed decorated lattice work body, creating a floral design. The dish vessel is further ornamented with an impressive embossed leaf and bead decorated border. The ornamental body of the tazza surmounts an exceptional cast silver pedestal constructed of a kneeling putto* covered with fabric swags, embracing and supporting the dish in their grasp.
