B NERESHEIMER & SOHNES (1893), LATER LUDWIG NERESHEIMER & CO

Price £9,750

An exceptional pair of antique German silver table ornaments in the form of large model knights in armour, each astride a galloping horse. These are particularly nice examples in terms of size and also the quality of workmanship. The knights have faux ivory faces and helmets with hinged visors which can be opened and closed; in the right hand they each hold a jousting pole, or lance, and in the left they clasp the horse’s reins. The models are very intricate with many separate pieces assembled together such as the sword, jousting pole, sword, stirrups and horse bridal. The bases have a naturalist finish representing a grassy field with frogs and lizards and around the bottom edge there is a pierced silver panel with trailing foliage. Although similar in size and stance, these models are significantly different in the decoration of the war horse armour and head embellishments. One horse carries a tall plumed cone on the crest of its head and bears a heraldic plaque on its haunches whereas the other sports a bird figure on the head and lacks any armorial detail. Weight 1474 and 1465 grams, total weight 2939 grams, 94.5 troy ounces. Height 34 cms. Spread 18.5 cms excluding the lance. Base 20.3 x 10 cms.
