This beautiful antique Bowl made in France by Legras Portieux (Vosges) around 1830'. It is hand blown of gold amber glass with turquoise details. This beautiful colour combination is named after Georges Sand, the famous French writer. It is believed that Chopin gave Sand a similar coloured glass set as a romantic gift, hence the name. The bowl finished in square shape with concave sides. It is set into bronze mounts with ring handles on each corner-like side.
The Bowl stands 5 1/4" -- 13.5 cm high; slightly over 6" x 6" -- 15.5 x 15.5 cm square.
Excellent condition, considering age, gilt shows wear but there is no damage of any kind.
Layaway is welcome.
