Table Decoration of the Prince de Condé

A solid silver (almost) table decoration which was created in 1736 for Louis Henri, Duc de Bourbon and Prince de Condé. This objet d'art appears to have been dedicated to the pastime of hunting; a stag is seen being attacked by hunting dogs and a wolf has caught its paw in a trap. It is likely that it would have been placed at the centre of the table.
