#1789 Sevres-Style Porcelain Bowl, 19th Century

Set in an elegant gilt-bronze mount adorned with rose garland swags and grape clusters.  Wonderful figural scene in center of bowl.  Some slight wear in the center.  The bowl was probably used on someone's dinner table in the 19th century.  The bronze mount was probably added later.  Approximately 7" tall x 16" wide from front to back x 29 1/2" from the outer tips of the handles (23" without the handles).  Inquire for picture of mark.  Will post additional pictures as soon as we have the opportunity.

SOLD#2530 Bronze and Onyx Candelabra, 19th CenturySOLD

Bronze does NOT take a magnet.  We have tested this piece all over with a magnet, and it does NOT take a magnet anywhere except for a screw and a small metal brace on the underside of the base.  Even the cherub does NOT take a magnet.

This beautiful old candelabra was once covered with gold, traces of which can be seen in the crevices.  That serves as a testament to its age.  The cherub itself has managed to retain its finish, except for the wear on the nose and slight wear on the body.  We have recently had the cherub, especially the nose and the left chest area, professionally touched up.

21 1/2" tall to the glass ring of the tallest candle.  The candles are real and not permanently attached.  Notice that each candle has a glass ring.

Item #2530


Click on updated picture for nose touchup and left chest area touchup.  Click on picture above for original nose condition and picture below for original left chest area condition.

Notice in the above picture the rough patch on the left chest area where it was touched up.  See pictures at left for original condition prior to touchup.

The candle arms are approximately 10" wide x 7" deep (the back side is flat for fitting against a wall or mirror).  The base is approximately 7 1/4" wide x 7" deep.

#2458 19th Century Italian Carved Giltwood Wall Sconce

Three arms for candles.  Two mirrors.  25" wide x 31 1/2" tall.  Has had some restoration.  The original gold leaf is still there for the most part, but has been touched up in places with gold paint, so is a combination.  Also some repairs have been made on the wood.  Notice the original hinges which we tried to capture in two of the pictures below.  It is believed to be from c. 2nd quarter of 19th Century.  Ready to hang on your wall.  A treasure of a find.

 SOLD#1844 Sevres Style Portrait Lamp with GriffinsSOLD

This is an unusual Sevres Style Portrait Lamp which we believe to be at least as old as the last quarter of the 19th Century. The body is porcelain decorated in a beautiful lavender as a background to the portraits

It has ornate bronze mounts of Griffins and other ornate decoration. The base of the lamp at the very bottom is not bronze.

It is 35" tall from the base to the very top of the tall finial and 8 3/4" tall from the base to the top of the gallery trim around the neck.

The portraits are transfers with some hand painted touches. There are signatures on the portraits which I have tried to show in the photos in the next column.

 Excellent condition.

SOLD#2090 Old Paris Porcelain LampsSOLD

Pair.  Hand painted florals on both front and back of each lamp.  c. last quarter of 19th century.  Approximately 32" tall to the top of the finial.  One finial is missing.  Height of light post can be adjusted (see picture below) to make them taller if desired.  There is some gold wear on the porcelain bases (see pictures below of each base).  Otherwise, these lamps are in excellent to perfect condition.  The ornate ormolu mounts do not take a magnet which indicates they are probably bronze.  The piece around the neck between the handles does, however, attract a magnet, which means it is made of white metal.
