Omschrijving
Pyxis (1) - Zilver, Zilver verguld - Begin 20e eeuw
Italië

Pyx in 800/000 silver and gilt silver, with semi-precious stones.
The polylobed base is decorated with ears of wheat and vine leaves, which alternate with the set green cabochon-cut stones. In the centre there is a cross on a mountain surrounded by grazing flocks. The rays of light of the Holy Spirit emanate from the cross.
The stem is decorated with religious figures (probably in lost wax casting) resting on an onyx disc.
The cup is in gilt silver, supported by a silver decoration, masterfully crafted with leaves, flowers and cherubs.
The lid is topped with a gold cross and has a star-shaped decoration with ears of wheat, stars and doves.

The item is entirely handmade, with various goldsmith techniques that denote great technical expertise. The decorative motifs are original and trace back to the Art Nouveau style.

At the base there is a punch with the title of 800/000 silver.

A dedication dated 29 VIII 1935 is engraved on the base
