    This 10" tall vase arrived in the workshop to have its original patina restored after it had been inadvertently removed. (You can see some of the original patina on the on the winged horse.) After repatinating, I highlighted a few areas to bring some life to the piece and show the viewer that it is indeed silver and not another material. It was then waxed. Also, a small hollow rim dent was filled-in with sterling/5% platinum. No maker's mark.

      Very nice to see you back posting, my posts are mainly gone as I stopped in 12 or 13. Your work is always the finest possible and probably because you analyze your pieces also for presentation as they are important and valuable. This piece is quite art deco in style, exquisite !~
