French Bronze Doré Coupe w/Handles and Lid

This piece is spectacularly heavy. It comes from Paris and dates from 1930-40.

It is a cast piece of bronze which has been gilded. It is truly a work of art. The pedestal base has a fluted, circular bottom. One tier slopes upward to adjoin the stem. Four groups of acanthus leave drape downward from the stem. The bowl has a lovely sloping shape. The sides have two "masques" which are set into a medallion flanked by flower shapes. The handles have cast flowers attached to the top and middle. The sides of the handles have a hand hammered design. The lid to the coupe has repeating hammered circle designs with alternating flowers. The lid has a fancy finial in the form of a harp. The interior is smooth and simply brilliant.

It is in excellent condition, the only thing noticed is a very slight bend to the outer ring (1/2")of the base. It measures: 7" tall to top of the finial, 2 3/4" diameter across the bottom, 7 1/2" across handle to handle, 3 1/2" in diameter for the opening of the bowl, 1 7/8" deep.
