{Antique German REPOUSSE Silver ANGELS Napkin, Letter or Card Holder}

Offering here a very rare and unique Antique German REPOUSSE Silver ANGELS Napkin, Letter or Card Holder for either the Office or your Tea Table. It is such an elegant addition. Below this post you find more links with also photos as a Card Holder. Hope you enjoy this special piece of silver work by German Silversmith ADAM MANNS & SOHN. This Holder is from before 1938 when they added a dot to the AMD silver mark after son Wilhelm took over. You will see info below.
Frolicking ANGELS or PUTTI decorate this beautiful Napkin, Card or Letter Holder...
Used here with hand crocheted cocktail napkins.
This rare antique piece is available for sale at my ZenCart powered on line Boutique: Mariette's Back to Basics: Antique REPOUSSE Silver ANGELS Napkin or Card Holder. 
This will adorn any tea table or hors d'œuvre buffet in a very romantic way!
Again I did use the gifted hand crocheted lace table topper made by blogger friend Susan from Ava Grace's Closet's Mama and of course our favorite Gardenias, the Large variety.
Don't you love these frolicking ANGELS together with the lace and flowers?
Creating a little bit of heaven on earth...
This is the back side, which is exactly the same as the front.
Different angle...
Showing you its bottom part and width, with feet.
Closeup of those frolicking ANGELS... PUTTI
The Silver Mark 800 AMD by ADAM MANNS & SOHN
This is the older mark from before 1938 as it is in a different sequence and without the • (dot) behind AMD as later was used by Adam's son Wilhelm
Sold out...
Once more, thanks to the help of Johanna Gehrlein's exceptional book about Silver Rose tableware I found all the info in her book: Rosen-Bestecke  
THANKS a lot Johanna! 
Do you love anything ANGELS?

      Oh, Angels, Putti or Cherubs have been the subject of the best painters, woodcarvers and silversmiths. It does add a different dimension to our daily lives!

  7. Hello Mariette, What a charming and well-executed piece with dancing putti (or angels, cherubs, etc.). Take a look at this 18th century grisaille painting by Pieter Joseph Sauvage:

    1. Dearest Jim,
      Thank you so much for this great information about Belgian Painter Pieter Joseph Sauvage who did such lovely playing Putti. I have added the word Putti and some links from CHRISTIE'S auctions with two of Sauvage's works. Indeed one must go back into the 18th century for being transformed to some heavenly scenes. But it still works soothing in this hectic era!
      Hugs,
      Mariette

      This old silversmith did such an incredible job on putting those frolicking Putti, Angels or Cherubs on both sides of this holder. It gives our day a different look!
      Have a lovely fall week too. We enjoy very sunny and warm weather at the moment. A true BONUS!

      Ja, Adam Manns aus Dörnigheim bei Hanau hat da etwas sehr schönes gemacht damals! Spielende Engel sind immer herrlich anzuschauen für jeder; da kenne ich keiner der sie nicht mag. Die Präsentation mit den Gardenien ist romantisch.
      Eine gute Nacht und lieber Gruss,

  12. It is lovely and I like the way you've displayed it. The gardenias are beautiful and must smell heavenly. We bought some gardenia bushes for our balconies. If they ever bloom, will be tiny little flowers. Not big beautiful ones like you have. Have a great day. Tammy

    1. Dearest Tammy,
      Thanks and let's hope that your gardenias will bloom so you at least can enjoy their fragrance too. The tiny ones turn very quick yellowish, unlike those large 'corsage' varieties we have. But nevertheless, we enjoy them while they last!
      Happy continuation of the week for you and hugs.

      Thank you for your visit and nice comment. We were lucky for having some of these huge Gardenias for the photos. It does add so much instead of only showing the object alone.
      Oh, gardens are a LOT of work and the bad thing is that no matter how bad the weather is; weeds always will grow like crazy! We have to plan now for getting all our potting plants inside the greenhouse again; for winter.
      Hugs and love,
