Dramatic sterling silver seafood serving bowl. Made by Buccellati in Italy.
Two joined scallop-shells bowls on scallop-shell supports. A traditional form enlivened by the figure of an octopus squatting in the center, its curled and tangled legs draped over the bowls. A graphic contrast between the scales and suckers of the octopus and the controlled and stylized ornament on the shells. Fully marked including "Buccellati" stamp and post-1967 Italian mark for Mabuti.
