Pair of dramatic sterling silver seafood serving bowls. Made by Buccellati in Italy. Each: Two joined scallop-shells bowls on scallop-shell supports. A traditional form enlivened by the figure of an octopus squatting in the center, its curled and tangled legs draped over the bowls. A graphic contrast between the scales and suckers of the octopus and the controlled and stylized ornament on the shells. Very original. Beautiful craftsmanship.

Fully marked including “Buccellati” stamp and post-1967 Italian mark for Mabuti. Excellent condition.

Overall dimensions: H 6 x W 15 1/2 x D 10 in. Heavy total weight: 132 troy ounces. #BV287
