Magnificent and rare museum quality fire gilded bronze desk set with four Austrian or French enamel miniatures. The painted enamel scenes are, by far, the best I have ever seen with superb detail and coloring. The bronze work is exquisite with delicate matching filigree work on all four pieces. The set consists of a large inkwell measuring 11.5" long by 7.75" wide; a letter box with three compartments measuring 6.5" long by 4.25" wide by 4.25" high; a paper holder and blotter measuring 9.5" tall by 7" wide; and a candlestick measuring 5.5" tall. The largest miniature measures 4.25" wide by 2.75" tall with the other two just a tiny bit smaller. The fourth miniature on the candlestick is 1.5" diameter. All the pieces are in pristine condition with gilding intact and enamels perfect. I would date the pieces to the late 19th-early 20th century. For the discriminating collector who desires the very BEST! Please ask for more photos, as I am limited in the listing. I guarantee your complete satisfaction. Layaway is available with generous time frame.
