Beautiful gilded acanthus motifs adorn this Baccarat coupe from the 1850 Napoleon III period of French decorative arts.

It stands 3 3/4 inches high. The coupe diameter is 4 3/4 inches wide and the diameter of the foot is 3 inches.

The gilding is almost perfect with only very slight wear. The Baccarat size two mark in red is on the base.

There are no chips, cracks, flea bites or repairs.

I am often asked about the purpose of these beautiful glass creations. Firstly they were created as beautiful decorative display pieces. This beautiful example would have adorned a ladies dressing table and she would have placed her jewelery trinkets on it. She may also have kept it on display in her vitrine. A vitrine was a French ladies display case where she kept all her precious collections of object d'art and other collectibles. There is an excellent description given in the book entitled The Hare with Amber Eyes by Edmund de Waal.
