Fresh from a Palm Springs estate is the large gorgeous ovoid French dore bronze centerpiece by Martin Benito and Cristal Freres. This is circa 1950 and It has 3 dolphin on the base where their tails support the bowl on an ovoid bronze ring where the cut crystal bowl rests and supported by bronze figural swan handles. Some wear but no chips some gilt loss, looks like it might have been polished as I see some residue in the bronze beaded border on to top. Some oxidation on bottom as seen from the top below the crystal bowl.
Measures about 22 1/8" long x 13" tall and 8.25" wide. Simply gorgeous!
