An XVIIIth century gilt bronze and silver lectern

Superb table-lectern dating of the middle of the XVIIIth century, made in Italy (Rome?), combining a gilt bronze structure with non-marked silver ornaments and high relief busts.

The front shows a silver relief with two angel winged heads in acanthus leaves, flanqued by two finely incised silver high relief busts of a child on a bronze podium. The lectern top displays a large central gilt bronze disc containing an incised silver disc representing an unidentified coat of arms surmounted by a ducal crown. Four large rocailles and volutes decorate the corners. The three gilt bronze struts connectings the legs are decorated with silver strips of classical inspiration.
The detail of the silver flower-shaped head screws shows the quality and the luxury originally aimed with this beautiful piece.

The bronze conserves its original gilding, the whole piece being in very good condition. Two minor restorations can be seen on the photos: the horizontal top bronze band was formerly restored, and one of the silver flower-shaped screws was also formerly replaced by a bronze replica.
