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….
