Description:

Napoleon III Gilt-bronze Centerpiece with a Sevres-style Porcelain Bronze-mounted Charger, France, 19th century, the figural bowl set with three cherubs supporting a floral wreath below a dish with tall grass border, the figures standing atop a freeform rocky base set on a foliate decorated base, ht. 14 3/4; the charger hand-painted with allegorical cartouches within scrolled gilt frames set on a cobalt blue ground, dia. 18 in.

The centerpiece and the charger are a marriage. Each appears to be in very good condition throughout.
