A highly impressive handmade and hand-chased 20th century Italian silver vase in the baroque style. Crafted from 800 silver, the vase is lightly gilded and the decorations are most finely detailed, demonstrating the exemplary skill of the chaser.

The baroque style used contrast, movement, exuberant detail, grandeur and surprise to achieve a sense of awe. The style began at the start of the 17th century in Rome, then spread rapidly to France, northern Italy, Spain and Portugal, then to Austria and southern Germany.
