A fine and exceptionally heavy French cast silver centrepiece by André Aucoc in the style of the Rococo Revival. The shell form body on four cast supports modelled as playful children, on a simulated rocky lozenge-shaped base.

 

André Aucoc (1856-1911), the younger son of Louis, headed the family business in 1887. Under him, the emphasis of the company reverted jewellery manufacturing, developed by his predecessors, back to silverware. André Aucoc produced silver and silver-gilt in the style of the eighteenth century, as well as dealing in antique silver.
