A French 19th Century Louis XVI St. Rouge Griotte Marble And Ormolu Tazza
Item # 9203
A beautiful and high quality French 19th century Louis XVI st. Rouge Griotte marble and ormolu tazza. The tazza is raised by topie shaped feet and a rectangular Rouge Griotte marble base with cut corners and a mottled border. A striking ormolu coeur-de-rai pattern repeats the shape of the base with an impressive and richly chased rosette centered by two most charming and wonderfully executed winged cherubs holding up the bowl above. The beautifully shaped bowl displays a fine mottled border and a exquisitely detailed central ormolu plaque in a striking satin and burnished finish. All original gilt throughout.
