Antique English Brass Tazza with Winged Cherubs-Gargoyles and Fruit circa 1850
We are so pleased to present this Antique English Brass Tazza Pedestal with Winged Cherubs-Gargoyles and Fruit. It is circa 1850. In all my 30 + years in this business I have never found a more wonderful piece of period brass. First of all it is spun and rings like a bell. The cherubs and fruit on the top plate area are done in repousse as can be noted in the photos. The gargoyles on the base have horns and very stern faces. It was made in several pieces. The legs have been applied with screws and square buts. The entire piece is held together the same way. I have taken lots of photos which show you the beauty of this piece. You will not be disappointed, I don't use the word magnificent lightly or often. This piece is a family heirloom!
DIMENSIONS: The tazza, pedestal stands 6" tall x 9" in diameter.
CONDITION: no problems of any sort noted.
