Watch Video of Two Gilt Silver Enamel Decorated Containers

Roll over for video transcript Michaan's April estate Asian highlight is this 20th century decorative grouping, listed as lot 216 at an estimate of $2,000-3,000.  The highlight of this group lot is this wonderfully decorated, globular form container.  This vessel is also of a fine metal mesh body, but this time flourishing with a grand vision of spring.  The enamelwork on this piece is exceptionally painted, with the flowers and foliage in softly graduating colors, juxtaposed by the vibrant yellow and green tones painted upon the birds. Join us on April 11 for an opportunity to buy two gilt silver enamel decorated containers at auction!
