Object description :

"Puiforcat: Asparagus Shovel In Sterling Silver, 19th Mascaron Model. Neo Renaissance Louis XV"
Very rare asparagus shovel in solid silver and vermeil of the Mascaron model by Puiforcat, circa 1880.

This decor is in the spirit of the Louis XIV style, it was part of the "Fantasy" collection sold by Puiforcat under the name "Mascaron".
The spatula is decorated with a mascaron in a finely openwork medallion, decorated with winding and acanthus leaves. The handle is extended in a fall of acanthus leaves also finely perforated.
The handle joins the spoon with a mascaron pattern resuming that of the spatula.
The back of the spatula is engraved with the number "AS"

The shovel is beautifully pierced and engraved to form a very rich interlacing of foliage and flowery scrolls.


The shovel is stamped:
. Minerva first title before 1973
. Goldsmith's mark: EP with a pocket knife for Emile Puiforcat

The Puiforcat house was founded by Emile Puiforcat in 1857. He died in 1883 and the house was taken over by his son-in-law in the 1890s.

Incredible model, extremely rare and requiring unimaginable re-piercing work these days. Maximum decorative effect.
