Philip Paval Sterling Silver Hand Wrought Dish
Charming hand wrought sterling silver dish. Scalloped bowl resting on four feet in the form of two-dimensional seahorses atop a ball foot. Fabrication of this piece is interesting in that the underside reveals a second reinforcing bowl to nest the larger top into.
An interesting and very rare piece by an artist that had a small but very loyal following - very few pieces of his handmade silver come to market.
