A truly stunning piece. 


Here we have an emerald green sectioned glass bowl snugly fitted with a gilt brass mounted frame with a pedestal base with concave designs around it.


I was particularly struck with the elegance and detail on the gryphon handles.  Awesome!


No chips or repairs. A few light scratches on the glass.  From an estate sale in southern Florida.  I was told it was made in Sevres France, near the well-known porcelain factories.


Decorative yet functional.  Auction quality.  For the Serious Collector.  Stand not included.
