Complete Art Deco Silverware Service by Plata Lappas in Cabinet
Item #2723 SOLD
A complete set of silver service for 12 in an Art Deco Cabinet from the famous silversmiths at Plata Lappas. Nothing is as elegant as heavily plated silverware in fitted drawers of a custom cabinet designed to hold each piece. Argentine in origin and French in tradition this hails from an era when people often used the term “rich as an Argentine”. From the turn of the century through the 1930s, the influx of wealthy Europeans brought their traditional styles of silver and china and you can see that a “place setting” was comprised of a very formal eleven pieces along with very grand serving pieces as well.
The pattern is elegant and streamlined as is the cabinet that houses the pieces so beautifully with a glass front for display fine woodwork and velvet lined drawers. The silverware was made with the highest content of Nickel, and a quadruple Silver Bath plating process that exceeds things found the world over. “Argent” is the word for silver…so of course one would expect the silver in Argent-ina to be of the very best quality!
The walnut cabinet with its “book matched” veneer and rich wood finish make this a highly collectible and very useful .
You really must appreciate all the varied pieces!
