Beautiful Pair of Ormolu Charles X Period Medicis Vase Shaped Cassolettes.
This Gorgeous Pair of Gilt Bronze, Medicis Vase Shaped Cassolettes date back to Circa 1824.
They rest on high Piedouche or Pedestals elaborately chased with floral details, knurled and beautifully gilded with a laurel wreath circling the pedestal.
The upper part of the vases is gadrooned and decorated in its middle register with gerberas and rosettes.
The rim of the vase is lined with laurel leaves. The lid is cutout with oak leaves and topped by a small butterfly.
The lid can be reversed to house a candle.
The Gilding is in very good shape and the work is exquisite!
