Pair of Monumental Carved Stone Garden Fruit Basket from Famed Vouziers Mansion

$48,000per set

About

Pair of unique monumental hand-carved stone garden fruit basket from famed Vouziers Mansion Florissant, Missouri. The French Country Chateau Vouziers was built in 1926 on a 250 acre estate for Magnet Joseph Desloge, part of the oldest French families in the USA. These Baskets were commissioned for the residence and imported from France. Each basket is unique and has it's own base. Stone has patina, appear to have been cleaned. Minor loss, see photos. Additional documentation is available. Limestone bases are 23.5" H x 27.5" W. Baskets are (need to measure).  These were purchase from the estate of Joseph Desloge's daughter, Anne Desloge Werner Bates, and confirmed by her son and daughter that they were moved upon the sale of Vouziers in the 1970s to Anne's residence that was part of the Vouziers 250 acre estate. From Wikipedia : The Desloge Family /dəˈloʊʒ/, one of the oldest French families in United States, Missouri and St. Louis, rose to wealth through international commerce, sugar refining, oil drilling, fur trading, mineral mining, saw milling, mercantile, manufacturing, railroads, real estate and river boats. The Desloge family are among the “French Aristocrats at the American West”, Carl Eckberg's phrase for the prominent French families in Missouri whose impact was “characterized as much by family connections, private enterprise and negotiation as by conquest”. The family motto is "Deus Honestum Fortis" (God, Honor, Strength). The family's 1930s sale of its Missouri lead company put the Desloges among the 10 wealthiest families in America. The family later funded hospitals and donated large tracts of land for public parks and conservation.[
