Venetian sugar bowl, what age?

Postby Italiansilver » Wed Jul 01, 2020 4:39 pm

Dear all,
I know that the mark of "leone in moleca" doesn't connect directly with the XVIII century, I know that this marl is often used beside modern maker mark to highlight the provenance or the style, so could you help me to identify the age basing on the object and style and not on the marks?
Many thanks.

Hello
the photos are not very detailed to give a judgment,
In principle it can be said that if the sugar bowl is heavy, if it has no signs of wear under the legs, if it has no signs of small and very close hammers, it is good to suspect.
Take a good look at the upper finishing edge, if it is modern you should recognize it.
Regards
Amena

Thanks Amena
I made some other pictures, not sere In capturing what you say...
Obderving well the Bowl i can say that It doesn't look modern, It has a good patina.
Is quite heavy and definitively It looks casted. The upper rim Is welded.
