This exceptional work comes from a Russian or Austro-Hungarian workshop.
It represents a sled in the snow driven by a Cupid.
The plinth dressed in a vermeil border is adorned with enamel beads and crystals.
The sled is entirely covered with a rich work of enamels, rows of small baroque pearls as well as cabochons of hard stones.
The horses held by a complex system of harnesses are made of silver and dressed in an enamel caparison.
The work is very rich in detail and materials, making this object a great masterpiece of civil goldsmithery (50 x 26 cm).
The photos do not quite reflect on the one hand the heat of the colors of the enamel, the caparisons of the horses for example are of a deep blue close to the blue of the oven of Sèvres, and and on the other hand of the quality of details.
Inscribed on the base 925/000.
Excellent, no lack or accident, requires jeweler cleaning if desired.
Base: 50 x 26 cm, height 22 cm.
