Empire Style Gilt Bronze Tazzas
A fine pair of totally Empire style gilt bronze tazzas, or possibly surtouts de table. The circular drum base on lions paw feet is decorated with wreaths; the drum supports three draped and winged cupids holding aloft a circular gilded cusp. Pure French empire in style they would likely date from the last quarter of the 19th century.
