Item Description

Classic thumbnail examples of the famous, historic curling wire silver specimens from the old mining districts of Saxony. These two cuties have dense and aesthetic nests of beautifully burnished, curved and curled wires. They are solid silver. No telling how old they are, but they do turn up in old collections, as well as from some lucky finds in the 1900s as well. An excellent 2-piece deal. Bob Whitmore collection
