Object Description

This exquisite centrepiece bowl was created in the late 19th Century in an 18th-Century Rococo style popularised by the Sèvres Porcelain Manufactory.

The centrepiece is composed of a porcelain bowl, with a wide body set on a slim flared foot. This is mounted with a gilt bronze (ormolu) mouth, which is ornately decorated with scrollwork, cartouches and stylised acanthus leaves. The mouth is fitted with two gilt bronze leafy C-scroll handles which continue down the length of the body. The porcelain bowl is painted a bright ‘bleu celeste’ (sky blue) colour. It is finely decorated with a group of cherubs on its front and a flower bouquet on its reverse. These scenes are contained within gilt oval, wreath-like frames. The porcelain centrepiece is set on a gilt bronze base which is made up of a cartouche, decorative mouldings, curling acanthus leaves and scrollwork.
