Antique Style 20th Century rare Italian Solid Silver impressively large decorative Ewer, 58 centimeters tall and 3470 grams, partially gilt and made in the Renaissance / Mannerist style, it closely reminds the pieces made by Benvenuto Cellini, the sculptor and goldsmith of the 16th Century considered the greatest of all time. The ewer is cast featuring a decoration with scrolling leaves and stylized flowers, impressive cast handle, hinged lid surmounted by a cast vase-shaped finial. Each side is applied with a gilt oval cartouche. The base is Hallmarked Italian silver (800 Standard), Milan, mark in use after year 1970. The Maker's mark is rubbed, but by style and quality can be a piece by Guido Fiorentini, a silversmith active in Milan until December 1971, specialized in very decorative presentation pieces such as this.
