An Elegant Suite of Antique French Silver Seashell Shaped Presentation Cups by Jean François VEYRAT.
The pieces are beautifully worked to resemble a perfect St Jacques Scallop – With all the ridges and details in solid silver.
The cups stand on 3 silver pearls.
They were used to present Hors D’oeuvres – but they could also be used as finger bowls or simply to decorate a table during a summer meal.
All pieces are in great state! No losses or dents.
Very elegant and refined
