Early 20th century pair of silver-plated dessert servers in the style of Louis XVI.
One server has the royal symbols of Louis XVI: the arrows of justice crossed with a flaming torch of truth. The flaming torch is an ancient symbol of life, truth and the regenerative power of fire while the quiver of arrows signifies the ability to use force in the pursuit of justice. Its handle has a classical motif of crossed ribbons over reeds and stylized acanthus leaves at its end.
The other server has more vegetal decorative elements with a hand-cut flower and leaves on the serving tray and its handle is embossed with little flowers and swirling acanthus leaves.
Traditionally used for serving dessert, this gorgeous duo can also be used to serve hors d'oeuvres or side dishes.
