A RENAISSANCE REVIVAL SILVER PLATED JEWELRY CASKET, BY E. BAZZOTTI, INDUSTRIA ARGENTINA, 20TH CENTURY,
the hinged rectangular top with bowed sides centering a shallow relief scene of a long tailed peacock perched atop a terrace statuary urn, set before the rolling hills of La Cumbrecita and Germanic style structures, within a border of continuous tulip blooms and side scrolled cartouches issuing laurel branches opening to a burgundy velvet lined interior, enclosed by exterior panels with front depicting balustraded steps ending at a pedestal urn filled with exotic foliage above a pond with paddling ducks, flanked by turret corners detailed as flaming urns over a base of continuous entre-lac trim centering a blank curling tipped cartouche, within bowed sides cast as a pair of courting love birds amidst scrolling rinceaux and a blossoming vine garland flanked by torches en flambeaux, before the back panel modeled in relief as a short plumed parrot resting on terrace steps while gazing at a flock of geese at various pursuits beneath a tall shade tree and foraging in a marsh landscape before distant tall grasses, verso grid squares alternating blank with a floret and surrounding a stylized quatre-foil cartouche "E.BAZZOTTI / C5 / INDUSTRIA ARGENTINA," in shallow relief and raised on short "C" scroll feet.
