Excellent condition, as shown in the pictures

This elaborate artefact is made of gilded bronze with mercury and each casting is excellently finished with chisel and burin.
The centrepiece has a painted and gilded wooden base and it is decorated with friezes and flowers. On the base there is a silver plated central cone with three caryatids, straight and winged female figures with folded arms, that hold on the head a large round base with a highly decorated rim.

This spectacular centrepiece is probably an ornament created to be placed at the centre of the dining table in formal occasions. It can also be used as a candlestick and maybe there was a top with many arms and candles.
This decorative artwork was handmade with an excellent workmanship.

From a private collection.
Size: height 60 x 35 cm.
Weight: 8 kg.
Shipping via UPS and packaging with a wooden crate and pallet.

    Non ha indicato il prezzo di riserva e mi ha detto che non mi avrebbe consegnato il lotto perché il prezzo di aggiudicazione era troppo basso.
    Ora indica il lotto come ritirato ma io non l'ho fatto
