Additional Information : The capitalisation within the gilded Daum signature was only used from 1896. Antoinette Lagriffont, 157 Rue du Temple, Paris was a registered silversmith from 1896-1899. This carried the second Minerva mark denoting that this rim is 800 fineness.
The question that must always be raised, was the added to disguise chips and damage. The silver foot rim may be removed and the glass beneath shows that it was gilded. The interior of the foot rim is parcel gilt. The upper silver rim is more difficult to remove but this also reveals that it it was not added to disguise damages. The upper rim has also been polished and there are still traces of parcel gilt.
We know that both Daum and Galle would send high grade items to Paris, Reims and Strasbourg to be augmented with silver rims and feet. This is such an example.
