Amazing Pair Of Carrara Marble And Ormolu Cassolettes

Amazing Pair of Antique French, Louis XVI Style, Gilt Bronze Cassolettes with White Carrara Marble bodies.

The two Cassolettes stand on tripod legs ending in cloved feet on a marble Tripod base.
The base itself is decorated with gilt bronze banding and foliate motifs.
A central ring holds the legs firm.

The Upper part is decorated with 3 gorgeously detailed Pan’s heads, with curling horns, and a laurel leaf décor.
The top of the cassolettes shows an ormolu wreath of acanthus leaves, with a finial shaped as a plume.

The lovely white Carrara marble vase is delicately curved and just beautiful….
These lovely Louis XVI Style Cassolettes were in high fashion under Napoleon the Third’s reign.
A stately décor piece….

Circa 1880
