Obverse, on the wing: - discharge punch for large works of silver, Paris 1744-1750 (a common greyhound) On the marli: Lion crawling, in a cartridge decorated stamped with a helm. The lion seems to hold an object in its paw (we reproduce as a working hypothesis the coat of arms of the Swiss family Alric, from Perroy (Vaud), of ancient French extraction. Our warmest thanks to Dr N. Gervasoni for his reading proposal ). Very good general condition. A dish has a slight depression in a quarter of a circle (clearly visible on the photo of the reverse). Superb patina. Marks, micro-shocks and scratches of use. Two Geneva dishes Model with six contours and silver filament moldings 1st title (XI deniers, or ~ 916/1000) Goldsmith François Barbier (1718-1798), received master in 1749 Geneva, between 1760 and 1762 Weight: 689g + 699g Diameter: 29 cm On the reverse: - hallmark of the master goldsmith (crowned FB, one star). - hallmark of title and city with the arms of Geneva and the initials of the juror Jean-Jacques Girod (IIG).

Very good general condition. On one, slight shock on an outline. Superb patina. Marks, micro-shocks and scratches of use. ____________________________________________________ We also present in our gallery a more recent Geneva dish (ca 1770), with six contours, devoid of coats of arms but engraved with the same LA monogram. The differences in model (five & six contours) and provenance (Paris & Geneva) illustrate fairly well the habits of the 18th century in general, and Swiss families in particular who liked to shop in Paris (see the catalog of the sale of furniture at Hauteville castle, September 2015, where many Parisian pieces rub shoulders with Geneva or Lausanne productions).
