LARGE silver-plated serving tray with ornate engraving

Item number: 19102121

Price: $150

This fairly large silver-plated serving tray. I am not sure why it is, but you get a lot more teasets than serving trays. This is a very good solid tray,measuring 54 cms x 34 cms. The photograph does not really show the detail of the ornate engraving on the tray.

RARE Love-Heart shaped trinket/gift box for Valentine/Engagement/Wedding, silver-plated

Item number: 18030150

Price: $150

I found this with my collection of napkin rings. It is a lovely silverplate gift box or small jewellery box in the shape of a love heart. It is marked as made by Knickerbocker Silver Co. USA. I found it while reorganising my figural napkin ring collection. I am expert in USA silverplate. This is cast in sand, hand soldered, amazing detail and workmanship. Lost a bit of silver on top. Reflects its age. ~125 years old. You will never see something like this again. Could also be used as anniversary present. Can even put a ring inside for a proposal. Price is firm.

Stunning VICTORIAN very ornate silver comport, made by WENDT

Item number: 26111619

Price: $1500 (SALE PENDING)

Stunning silver-plate VICTORIAN comport, made by J.M Wendt of Adelaide. Wendt arrived in Adelaide in 1854 and set up a precious metal/silver business. There is more information on the Internet.

This is a vintage and historical piece that was sort from me by the South Austrlain museum, but I think they essentially wanted me to donate it to them. I saw a silver-plated goblet by Wendy go for $2000 on ebay. The comport stands at 11 cms tall and measures 36 cms from handle to handle. This is a magificant and very ornate Victorian silver comport

Denmark-born J.M. Wendt came to Australia and became one of its most famous 19 century silversmiths. Queen Victoria commissioned a number of presentation pieces by Mr.Wendt which where presented to various recipients by crown.

J.M. Wendt served Australia and England making extraordinary works from silver. He had his own store with a large variety of silver objects. He is best known for his detailed artwork in silver, in particular for silver-mounted emu egg presentation pieces.

Most of Wendt's original surviving works are now held in museums and private collections. His work rarely comes on the market, and when it does it commands high prices. Recently an emu egg inkwell was listed starting at $14,000 on ebay.

This piece is in excellent condition and is an extraordinary example of art and silver workmanship. Authenticity guaranteed.
