A RARE GORGEOUS Fine Antique French Opaline Turquoise Blue Glass
Gilt Bronze Center Piece Box featuring ornate Ormolu Mounts.
A genuine Antique from the late-18th century, while open the large bowl with gilt decorative embellishments on the exterior can hold tea, sugar, candy, rare keepsakes or nothing at all. Elegant scrolling designs of flowers or floral detail across the lovely mountings. Gilded surface has a wonderful patina which is natural from age. The hand-painted 18K Gold enamel is still very shiny with minimal to no gilt loss. Very Beautiful and very rare. This most coveted shape and tropical ocean water blue color Opaline glass is very rich. Natural wear as to be expected of a fine treasure this age.
Palais Royal 1800's (Around 1850, very old!)
All of the glass in absolutely perfect condition with no wear, chips or crack. No repairs or flaws and very elegant in person. The blue seems to glow from within and is very luminous even in the dimmest of light. So very pretty. View our photos so see the finest of details. Must have taken a very long to to create by a master artisan, a couture treasure indeed. A miniature work of art. The color of this beauty is stunning in person and our photos do not do this treasure justice.
