This antique French bronze cup has many things going for it: it is a deeply bas relief cup with two Roman medallions, one of a Roman head and one of a couple of lovers. The rest of the cup is covered in vines and flowers. The inside of the cup is gilded as is the base. It is very heavy, indicating solid bronze. The bronze is very well done with great definition and except for some patina loss, is in great shape. Weight is almost 2 pounds.
Measurements are: 2 7/8" diameter and 5 3/4" tall.
