A stunning fine enameled glass set that is just in from Paris, 3-pc, all to match. The richness of the decoration is thrilling - we wondered if it might alternately be Harrach, but the enamel work is finer, more delicate. Florals, leaves and gorgeous butterflies on each of the 3 pieces. Comprised of a bonne nuit or 'evening' carafe and underplate and a separate smaller plate that is unusual in these old sets. This one does not look to be the type that would have had a "topper-up" timbale or drinking cup upturned on top as a cover, so perhaps initially the cup might have rested in the 2nd saucer. For me, it's all decorative and gorgeous. Lots of gold. Our photos show the set well and in fine detail. Have a look.
Very good to excellent, I can only mention a single flaw of sorts and that being the worn away gold rim on the smaller plate. There is a small bit of gold rim paint worn away on the lip of the carafe, but nothing on the beautifully crafted decoration otherwise. No chips, no cracks, no hairlines. Stunning set!
Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images. Thanks for all the compliments - we love what we do! Antiques & Uncommon Treasure - all the best, all the time!
