Tripod cauldron in bronze. Alberghetti foundry. 16th century.

A superb tripod cauldron in bronze with a rich decoration of griffins facing each other on either side of a flowered vase, foliage scrolls ending in cornucopias, egg-and-dart frieze, diamond points, rosettes and rosaries with elongated beads. With the original wrought iron handle.

Attributed to the Alberghetti foundry, a family of founders and manufacturers of firearms mainly active in Venice.

This is a museum-quality piece, in our opinion one of the finest cauldrons that we have seen on the art market until now.

Northern Italy. Renaissance. 16th century.

Provenance: private collection in Belgium; then sold at auction where it was appraised by Mr. Benoit Bertrand of the Laurence Fligny Cabinet.

Dimensions: H (without handle) 23.5cm x diameter (body) 24 cm.

In excellent condition with a fine patina.
