Description:

Pair of Malachite-inlaid Marble Cassolettes, possibly Russia, late 19th/20th century, urn-form, with gadroon panels above a fluted base mounted atop a waisted socle on a raised square plinth, ht. 17 1/4 in.
Estimate $2,000-4,000

Each urn appears to have been glued to the socle. A corner of one plinth appears to have been restored. There are lines throughout each cup though it does not appear that either have been broken.
