"Silver Cow. Nicaud."
Amazing small sculpture depicting a cow, in solid silver, 78.5 made by Nicaud, late 19th-early 20th. It is presented on an oval base decorated with flowers and foliage. The animal is shown walking. The way in which the sculptor was able to render all the details of his anatomy on such a small surface is impressive; nothing is left to chance, it is very realistic. The many photos that follow demonstrate this easily. Presence of the hallmark hallmark and that of a goldsmith in full: NICAUD on the base. L: 6cm W: 3cm H: 4cm Weight: 78.5g Good condition.
