Pair of Gilt Bronze and Marble Cassolettes from France, Circa 1880

This elegant pair of red veined, marble urns or cassolettes has been decorated with wonderful bronze ornamentation.  The motifs are laurel leaves, garlands of fruit, beribboned garlands of fruit, acanthus leaves, ribbon tied laurel leaves and water leaves.  There are two acanthus leaf- adorned handles with female masks within an oval beneath. All this rests upon a square marble base.

Beautiful just as they are, these cassolettes could also be used as lamps with an unattached platform.

CONDITION: Very minor chips to marble edges.
