19th C French Dore Bronze Mtd Snake Handle & Faux Porphyry Porcelain Centerpiece

$26,800

About

A Fabulous 19th Century French Louis XVI Style Dore Bronze Mounted Snake Handle and Faux Porphyry Porcelain Centerpiece. This piece is beautiful and so well made that the hand-painted faux porphyry porcelain looks absolutely real, as if it was made out of a carved piece of Egyptian porphyry. The porcelain centerpiece is made of hand-carved porcelain and hand-painted with excellent precision to appear as porphyry. The porcelain body is fitted with exceptional quality dore bronze mounted handles, which are in the form of snakes. The snake handles are finely hand-chased, hand-chiseled, matted and burnished, which demonstrate the fine quality of dore bronze. There is tremendous detail in each snake, which include life-like scales, eyes, mouth, and beautiful dore bronze bow around their bodies. Each handle is a combination of two different snakes, four snakes in total, creating a beautiful wide-handled design. The upper dore bronze rim is also incredible, with a roped design fitted with dore bronze bows. The porcelain body is of an oval form with ribbed rounded decoration, which runs down a waisted neck on a square dore bronze plinth with swirling-circular designs. France, Circa: 1850
