A Louis XVI Gilt Bronze-Mounted Meissen Pot-Pourri Vase and Cover, the Mounts Probably Late 18th Century


height 11 in.; width of base 4 ½ in.; depth 4 ½ in.

27.9 cm; 11.4 cm; 11.4 cm

Mounts with minor casting flaws, rubbing to gilding, areas of oxidation, and some accumulation of surface dust in crevices. The lower part is formed of a Meissen écuelle base, its leafy branch handles lacking with terminals partially visible under bronze-mounts. The cover appears to be a marriage with differences in the porcelain body and quality of the gilding.
