Pair of English Doré & Silvered Bronze Camel Centrepieces for Orientalist Market

$11,800

About

An unusual and very fine pair of antique ormolu and silvered bronze English camel centrepieces made for the Orientalist/Anglo Indian Market, Signed by Elkington. This magnificent pair of centrepieces denotes three beautifully silvered camels perched on the ormolu base, draped with cast and hand-chiselled ormolu giving an effect of soft draped silk flourishing in the wind. Each camel is exceptionally cast and hand-chiselled with such detail and fine craftsmanship that they seem alive. The silver and ormolu are both exceptional in quality and construct, having exquisite detail in even the finest of aesthetic tassels on the camels back. The crystal bowl is exceptionally hand-cut and of the finest quality. Inscribed with 'Rd 25 4 1 r c' on the ormolu base. England, circa 1850.
