Antique French 19th C Pink Ground Sevres Style 3-Piece Pot-Pourri/Candelabra Set

$39,800per set

About

An extraordinary and fantastic quality antique French Louis XVI style and sevres style pink ground three piece pot-pourri and four arm candelabra garniture set. This unusual and quite rare set is made up of two of the rarest and most desirable Sevres models to have ever been produced by the Sevres porcelain company. The center object, known as a pot-pourri gondole, was produced by the Sevres company in 1757-1758 for King George IV, and is one of only three pink ground Sevres porcelain objects still in the Royal Collection. This particular pot-pourri model is considerably complex to produce, as the top is in the form of a pierced-onion with circular open-work holes intended for use with hyacinth flower bulbs. This particular model is decorated in a gorgeous pink-ground with the main panels decorated in hand-painted decorations of three putti's in the clouds playing with one another. The pot-pourri is further decorated white paneled sections filled with hand-painted flowers. The piece is further adorned in 24K gold decoration. The lid is encrusted in all hand-painted porcelain flowers of all shapes and sizes. The form of this pot-pourri bares resemblance to the Venetian gondola, for which royalty adored. The candelabras of this marvelous set hold their own as extraordinary and of the most sought-after form produced by the Sevres company. These were produced around the same time as the pot-pourri , in 1758 by Jean-Claude Duplessis, one of the foremost ceramic porcelain modelers for the Sevres company from 1748-1774. The candelabras are called, vase à tête d'éléphant, which translates to elephant head vase. These were originally designed as vases with an intent to place candelabra arms on them, and this pair is of no exception with gorgeous candelabra arms which continue from the trunks of the elephant heads. These candelabras are truly incredible with a pink-ground, hand-painted panels of multiple putti's playing in the clouds, a gorgeous base with white accents, and to top it off, each section is hand-painted with multi-colored flowers and finished in 24K gold. The bottoms of each of this marvelous pieces are marked in gold with French porcelain marks. Sets like this garniture are extremely rare and even more difficult to find in this quality and condition. France, Circa: 1800's.
