"18th French Cassolette, Blue Glass, Ormolu , Louis XVI"
A find that is becoming rare: a torch holder cassolett, blue blown glass, perhaps Bordeaux blue, late 18th century, mounted of gilded bronze with mercury. The elegant Louis XVI shape, the gilt bronze mounting, the contrast between colors and materials are still a feast for the eye. A beautiful object, to which we can only blame a starting crack in glass, which is visible only by looking with the lamp, and obviously not to be in a pair.
