Stunning Silvered Bronze Ewer on a Neo-classical Three-legged Gilt-Bronze Mounted Pedestal.
Features Renaissance Revival chased decoration all over, with strap-work, masks, arabesques, foliage and animals against a matte silver background. The body has three banded sections, each with its own motifs. The tall neck compliments the deeply curved spout with conforming decoration that includes a large central mask. The ewer also has a remarkably sculptural caryatid handle. French, 19th century.
