Pair of German Renaissance 800 silver hunting figures, ca 1890. The man wears doublet over baggy chemise and hose with belt hanging loosely around hips. A long hat feather drapes gracefully along his arm. The horn is raised expectantly while the other hand rests on his sword. The woman wears a bodice-revealing fitted hip-length coat over a pleated skirt. Her braids are coiled in the back and her hat sports a jaunty feather. On a raised arm perches a hawk. Both figures stand on rocky mounds with scattered vegetation; at the man’s feet lurks a lion, bear, and gryphon. Heads detachable. Hanau marks. Very good condition with deep patina.

Large dimensions: Man: H 16 1/2 x W 7 1/2 x D 7 in. Woman: H 17 x W 6 1/2 x D 6 1/2 in. Total weight: 81 troy ounces. #BX220
