Elkington Pair Champleve and Cut Glass Tazza
Our pair of tazza from Elkington and Co. from the mid to late nineteenth century are crafted from champleve bronze with cut class dishes, and have been attributed to Auguste-Adolphe Willms (1827-1899) who served at the company's chief designer between 1855 and his death in 1899. They feature enameling in blue, red, and black in anthemion motifs, and bases with shaped apron set upon paw feet. They have the company mark, impressed mark 645 and date marks that are not decipherable due to wear.
Condition of each is good. There are small enamel losses and rubbing wear. One stand shows fatigue to the upper rim and one with a deeper nick to the base. There are nicks, abrasions, scratches to the glass and one has straw lines.
