Very rare solid silver “Mercury messenger of the gods”

James Dixon & Sons Sheffield 1954

£1,750

Very rare solid silver statue of Mercury standing on a marble base. Mercury is mounted on a screw in base so consequently we can weigh the silver content. Mercury is superbly made by casting and does not have any loading inside, just solid silver. He is wonderfully posed and observed and stands on top of the world that is engraved with the continents showing in outline.
