A very Charming Antique French Ormolu And Crystal Bonbonnière with Cherubs.
The lovely piece showcases a gorgeous wheel cut crystal center, that is intact and bearing the finest work of chiseling.
The Gilt Bronze or Ormolu body is finely sculpted with floral wreaths and shows on the main part 3 Cherub faces bracketed by butterfly wings.
The Bonbonnière Crystal Lid is topped by another Cupid running with his toga held aloft.
The lower part is tripod shaped and ends with lions paws.
The work is beautiful and very delicate.
This beautiful piece dates back to the early 19th Century, France.
