Frequent guests of our little web page know that we don't list many Martelé items. Over the years, their high silver content often leads to softening of detail, sometimes to the point of unpleasantness, and we are fussy about the condition of our objects. This one needs no such apologies, as you may run your fingertips over the chasing and still feel sharp edges left by the silversmith's tools.
