Bruce Cherner Antique Silver
height 5 1/2; diameter at base 4 3/4 inches, fine original patina on body , lid is a bit stained, some scratches (see photo number five), includes original sponge. Price reflects condition-- a rare piece.
height 9; diameter 5 7/8 inches, soft dark patina in fine condition save for a splotch of green paint as shown in second enlargement, marked only "H2" on glass globe, will probably need to be re-wired. As with all of our offerings (excepting item 1928), this is a period piece, not a reproduction.
For those of you who did not get the chance to attend Brimfield this July in search of great antique silver, take heart. There was not much to be had. After a long day of shaking, nay thrashing the bushes, all we had to show for ourselves was this charming and well modelled little dog, length three inches, height 2 1/4 inches, excellent condition, unmarked.
Apparently doggie was once mounted on a plinth, as two of his paws have threaded holes (please see fourth photo).
