Pair of Gilt Bronze and Marble Cassolettes from France, Circa 1870

These antique French cassolettes have been carved from stunning pieces of marble. Rich colors of black, dark and light gray, tan, rust, gold and cream and more come together to make up the bodies of these beautiful cassolettes. The bronze ornamentation has been made into motifs of fruit, stylized acanthus leaves, beading, garlands of floral and foliate motifs, scrolling rinceau, female masks, ribbon crossed laurel leaves and twist turned handles.  All this rests upon square marble bases. Beautiful just as accessories, these cassolettes could also turned into lamps.

CONDITION:  Very good antique condition with some old surface buildup on bronze, small notches on back bases of marble.
