FABulous raised gold enamel decorated service for fruit, dessert or punch. French made, probably either Baccarat, St. Louis or Legras. Elaborate hand painted thick impasto gold enamel on each piece. Lidded serving bowl on raised stem has its original lid which is made to accommodate the punch ladle that goes with it. The under tray is, like all the other pieces remaining in this set, damage free. There are 8 stemmed cups or "cordials", sherbet cup size, for service. These sets are fruit service sets in France, and date from mid-1800s to late-1800s. When we initially listed this set, we had only 3 cups, but recently bought a 2nd set and can now fill out this set and offer it complete with all 8 matching stems, the punch bowl, the ladle and the matching original under tray. Measurements are noted on the photos. Price adjusted, as well. We will be listing a 2nd matching punch bowl and ladle as a separate offering, just in case you want 2 (sold separately).
Very good to excellent condition, no chips nor cracks and no hairlines at all. The pieces you see included here are all in fine form. We'll pack with great care to make sure it arrives to you in the same fine condition. Isn't it just the prettiest!
