Beautiful antique French Napoleon III gilt ormolu liquor stand with four mugs - cordials. There are two more hooks at the bottom, what I believe for two more cordials, four remain with the set now and it's definitely an enchanting decorative piece. The gilt ormolu base fixture is in the shape of a wreath with vines and leafs. The decanter and cordials made of an emerald green glass, embellished with hand painted lilly of the valley with gold accent.
The decanter stands 8 1/2" (21 cm) high with the stopper in; the cordials 2" (5.2 cm) tall 1 1/4" (3.2 cm) in diameter at the opening.
Very good condition. As mentioned above, the piece had six cups originally, four are there now and all are in fine shape. No chips or cracks or any other damage to the decanter, just a bit of age tarnish to the gilt ormolu mount.
