Antique Sevres Style Hand Painted Ormolu Mounted Lidded 12 inch Urn AS IS
Antique Sevres Style Hand Painted Ormolu Mounted Lidded urn AS IS. This elegant vase has so much detail - where to start. AS IS because there is a repair just below the ormolu above the foot - see Photo 5 where below the metal is a repair compound which cannot be seen looking directly at the vase and may be to contain the chipped portion or something else. I have handled this piece, removed the ormolu finial, the lid and the metal collar to check on the interior. The rod is old, rusted but firm within the piece and held by hex nuts. The finial is slightly off center, as are the fabulous Art Nouveau style arms which descend into points with one arm further forward than the other but, I did not want to risk damaging the dainty piece. The urn stands at just over 12 inches to the top of the finial, The gilding is still very present with a central scene of bucolic courtship. The reverse shows a simple gold flower. There are no identification marks I could find in my discovery, the ormolu is finely detailed and worn, with one foot wobbly.

I didn't want to risk damaging it by trying to adjust (bend) it and this delightful piece has been happily sitting in my display cabinet. The finial, lid and ormolu collar can be loosened safely. See photo 12 for the three pieces comprising the top. Please review the photos and let me know if you have questions. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Decorative Collectibles\Vases".
