19th Century Chinese Rose Medallion Coupe with French Bronze d’Ore Mounts

Item Number: 6142

This extremely fine 19th century Chinese Rose Medallion porcelain covered coupe is mounted with a 19th century bronze d'ore pierced rim, handles and a pierced pedestal base. The bronze d’ore is French and classic Louis XV. It exudes a beautiful impression of nature in its movement. In the 18th and 19th century the French had a strong affinity for export porcelain, and would add extraordinary bronze d’ore handles and bases to export porcelain bowls, to make the piece grander. This is a gorgeous example of the practice, as it combines exquisite porcelain and ornately detailed bronze d’ore.
