245.00

This extraordinary pair silver tazza was crafted in Portugal, probably in Lisbon. Exemplary of the superior repousse work so typical of the area. The tazza features a lathe raised bowl and a footed base. Most dramatically, the cast rim is of the timeless acanthus and scroll motif. Condition is near perfect. Under one scroll the piece is twice marked. One mark is the Portugal eagle and the 833 mark. the second mark is less clear but looks to be a rectangular mark in a trapezoidal cartouche. A good heavy gauge of silver makes it a dramatic and eye-catching presentation piece for table or home.

10" across and 2.5" tall.
