SOLD

Offered is a very good and quite uncommon example of a antique Maltese silver, made in 1822 by noted silversmith Emidio Critien, who worked from 1818 into the 1840s. This piece features an exceptionally well engraved period armorial and a clear maker's mark and hallmarks. It measures about 7 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 67 grams. Condition is excellent overall (the pictures do not do it justice), with a very good surface and no dents, splits or repairs. This would be a highlight of any collection of sugar sifters or of domestic silver from Malta. All in all a lovely piece, almost 200 years old!
