Pair of Antique First Period French Empire Centerpiece Tazzas or Fruit Compotes

A rare and hard to find pair of matching and all original Old Paris porcelain centerpiece or dessert stands. This fine set of two pieces feature elegant and beautifully cast women angels supporting the finely hand-cut reticulated baskets. A well designed claw foot base and details to the body, feet, gown and facial features distinguish these exceptional pieces. Slight and appropriate gilt loss as well as an old and professional restoration to one do not diminish the integrity of this pair. Impressive in size and wonderful in scale. The height is 15.1 ” tall and the base is 6.25″ wide.
