Object description :

"Beaker, Silver By Joseph-louis Bennaben, Saint-malo, 1748-1751"
  • Beaker
  • Silver
  • By Joseph-Louis Bennaben (Mo 1748-after 1796) Saint-Malo, 1748-1751 (Courts of Rennes)
  • Good condition, chisel very fresh, weight: 135g, Height: 9 cm
  • On gadrooned foot, the body chased with a large frieze of laurel leaves and strapwork. The lower part of the body, delimited by a double net, is chiselled with the repulse of lanceolate leaves engraved with ribs, alternating lambrequins with palmettes and with double shells, detached on a amati bottom. The upper edge is underlined with nets. This repoussé decoration taken again with the chiselling is typical of the production of Haute Bretagne during the Regency and the Louis XV period. He freely takes the sets to appliques: the work of repoussé that we find in this region gives the illusion by a volume made repoussé, accentuated by carving, that we are dealing with a model with appliques. Similar timbales described in the collection of Jacques Berroyer [1] (n ° 148 & 149 (pp: 345-346), the collection of goldsmiths of Haute Bretagne [3] (n ° 141 & 160) and a timbale sold at Sothebys on 8 November 2012 No. 206
