Object Description

Pair of French gilt bronze and cut glass tiered centrepieces
French, c. 1840
Height 70cm, diameter 37cm

This pair of gilt bronze and cut-glass centrepieces is a superb example of Louis Philippe period design. Each centrepiece features a tall, richly detailed central stem, raised on a triform base. Atop each base is seated a trio of putti, each of which plays a musical instrument. The stem itself is superbly formed, with a wide variety of Neoclassical detailing. The top of each is set with a loop comprised of a winding snake, his head curving around to bite the pinecone finial that surmounts each. The central stem of each supports a series of three cut glass dishes, tiered in size from largest at bottom to smallest at top.
