Pair of Russian Empire Malachite, French Bronze Centrepiece/Tazzas by Thomier

$22,600per set


A magnificent pair of Russian Empire Period malachite, French doré bronze and cut crystal Tazzas, signed THOMIRE A PARIS. The square malachite bowls are upheld by putti (cupids) standing on tree trunks. The lower levels are formed by cut crystal bowls providing additional space for fruit or flowers. The feet are formed by dolphin heads. In an era noted for its 16 course meals lasting many hours; no table would be complete without a variety of serving pieces. The table literally groaned with food (as I suspect did the diners). Malachite, a great favorite of the Russians, is a form of copper with fantastic naturally occurring patterns. It was always regarded as a luxury item, in serve ware and also in jewelry.
