This beautiful French centerpiece presents a circular covered with a mirror, surrounded by a rich frieze with vases of flowers and fruit, foliated rinceau and angels that hold baskets of flowers, made of finely chiselled and gilded bronze. The peculiarity of this precious frame is that it has an external and an internal finish. Externally the angels are represented by shoulders, while from the inside we see them frontally holding the basket of flowers.
