Pair of 18th Century Louis XVI Bronze Dore Cassolettes


Pair of Louis XVI Bronze Dore Cassolettes      Circa. 1760-1780        France

Cassolettes  were used to burn pastilles and for liquid perfumes during the reign of Louis XVI   These identical cassettes have reversible lids.   One side has a finial decoration, the other holds a candle.    So beautiful and so clever.   Not many of these bronze items survived from this period.   This pair measures 8 inches in height and approximately 3 1/2 inches in diameter.   Total weight is 4 pounds one ounce.    All original.  Would be a great addition to any fine home with a classic interior.

All in pristine original condition.
