By Jules Wièse, Paris circa 1860, also stamped 'WIESE'

The shell with a silver-gilt rim held on by two putti with a further putto holding a necklace of beads, the whole supported on a jet of water issuing from the mouth of a merman engaged in battle with a serpent with gold forked tongue, height 24.5cm.

Jules Wièse (1818-90) learnt his skills in the workshop of J. G. Hossauer, court goldsmith in Berlin. He later moved to Paris to work for J-V. Morel who was well known for his work in gold and jewellery.
Wièse first exhibited on his own account in 1855, receiving a medal of the first class. The Paris correspondent for The Morning Post described him as 'an artist of very exquisite taste. His Renaissance cups are perfection, and every object in his stall displays a thorough knowledge of middle-age art.'
Further success came in the 1862 London Exhibition where he was awarded a Medal of Honour for artistic design and good workmanship.
His son Louis continued the workshop.
