This would have been among the finest wares offered in the boutiques of the famed Palais Royal or shops similar in Paris, at the period of time c. The lobe-blown cranberry glass is in remarkably good condition for age and type, and still is opulently coated in the original thick ormolu casement to include beads of opaline (missing just one). The grape leaf-like and berry or grape trim is just remarkable on this one.
I did nothing to clean it, so you might find a darkened spot here or there that you'll want to take a little polish to when it's yours. It is 4" in height and 5" in diameter in that lobed upper dish.Very good to excellent condition for age and type. More to feel with finger than to see with eye, they detract little if at all. I would hate to dismantle the ormolu and opaline trim in order to have those filed perfectly flat; will leave such decision to you. The only notable visible imperfection is that one of the opaline dangle beads that has its own ormolu casing has gone missing through the centuries.
All of the smaller grape-like ones are in place, however. A very small loss for such age and importance.
Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images.
