Fantastic large pair of gilt on blue opaline 15 3/4" tall pair of Napoleon III pair....dating to about c1850 or so. I was originally told these were Charles III.....so lets say they range from c1840 - c1860. These are top of the line and with the best hand gilt decorations money could buy from that era. Roughly 7 1/4" diameter at widest. Very fine thick hand polished pontil base as shown. Super quality and not a mistake or chip anywhere. The gilt is in amazing shape, guaranteed at least 150 or so years old. They will amaze in person that they could be in such fine shape.....they were kept out of the sun and never "cleaned" or apparently used with anything put inside. Includes fantastic 1st rate shipping/insurance anywhere we ship in the world!
