Gilt Bronze Tazza Garniture with Hunting Motif
Our antique surtout de table, circa 1880s, includes a large centerpiece tazza and two small matching tazza, each with cut glass bowls. Largest measures 14 in tall and 8 7/8 in across. Smaller ones measure 6 7/8 by 8 3/8 in.
The bronzes feature openwork with a central stem decorated with the heads of hounds, deer and wild boar, with large s-scroll supports ending in stylized dragons, acanthus leaf, bead, shell and fluted designs. Apparently unsigned.
