Three Antique French White and Gold Swans

About

A set of three white and gold porcelain swans made originally as sauce boats each richly gilded (the gilt is in perfect mirror-like condition). The golden sauce boat interior and underplate contrast beautifully with the pure white bisque porcelain of the swan. Made in the 19th century by the French factory of Samson with faux Dagoty marks (see images #11 and #12). One can imagine them filled with hot chocolate sauce for pouring over ice cream or any rich dessert. In addition to their use as sauce boats these swans are so decorative that they could be placed on a table or fireplace mantle used simply as decorations. Dimensions: the larger swan: 9" long x 7.5" wide x 5.25" tall, the pair of smaller swans: 5.8" long x 5" wide x 4.75" tall Condition: Excellent Price for the set of three: $ 3200 Background of the Samson Factory: Edme Samson began his career in the late 1830s. In 1845 he opened the ceramics firm Samson, Edmé et Cie at 7, Rue Vendôme (later Rue Béranger) in Paris. During the 19th century Samson’s firm reproduced ceramics in a breadth of styles. The firm exhibited at the International Exposition (1867) and the Exposition Universelle (1889). Today their porcelains are highly valued.
