At Important Winter Sale we are pleased to present an exquisite department for silver at this fall’s exceptional viewing at Bukowskis Berzelii Park 1 in Stockholm. Our knowledgeable specialist Anna Wehtje has chosen three favourites from the auction, which will be sold on 6 of December.
Christian Henning was one of Sweden's most important silversmiths of the baroque period – this is shown in the impressive and unusually large silver dish marked in Stockholm 1706 – the motif is "Noah's sacrifice" which through it's rainbow reminds the spectator about the importance of taking good care of our world not causing another major catastrophe like Noah's flood.
A coffee pot with an attitude – marked Peter Ohlijn Karlskrona - shows an attractively decorated spout and a smooth blackwood handle – strong rococo attributes that showed artistic skills in 1780 when coffee was a luxurious and fashionable drink.
Strong French influences are to be found in the beautiful and rare pair of candlesticks with marks of Pehr Zethelius in Stockholm 1780 - the elegant flutings and leaf-scrolls will help to reflect the candlelight throughout the dark.
