Pair of tripod cassolettes in white marble and chased and gilded bronzes forming candleholders. The ovoid vase with a doucine lid decorated with pendeloque in the oriental style is held by three feet in the form of caprine legs, ending with heads of oriental men adorned with turbans. The whole rests on a circular base in white marble bordered with a frieze of pearls.
The reversible tops acting as torches by gadrooned bins on one side and serving as lids and snuffers with pine cones on the other side.
Good condition, in its original old gilding.
Parisian work of the Louis XVI period around 1780-1790.
