Antique French Sevres Style Gilt Ormolu and Porcelain Urn Vase


An antique, 19th-century French porcelain urn or lidded vase, with a "bleu celeste" background and medallions of a cherub on the front and floral bouquets on the back and lid. Gilt bronze ormolu base and handles. Orange fruit handle top. Unmarked (might be marked on the base of the porcelain, which can't be accessed); probably Sevres, if not then Old Paris Porcelain. 5.5ʺW × 3.75ʺD × 7ʺH. Some light losses to the gilt. One of the ormolu bits of the handle that hooks in the base comes out, and might have to be reinserted (it holds, but it's delicate). less
