Pair of table flower stands in painted babbitt metal representing two young turbanned servants, looking more like Indian woman, slightly bending under the weight of the round basins they carry in their arms.
Babbitt metal are tin or lead and antimony alloys.
Used since the second half of the 19th century, or even a little before, it is covered with a bronze tint, or a color, in this case a beige mastic.
England, about 1890
