Review

White and blue porcelain centerpiece, featuring two winged Cupids in bisque leaning on gilded quivers.

They are wearing a crown on which is resting the pierced basket, in the manner of Kanephoros. In ancient Greece, a Kanephoros was a young girl who, during religious ceremonies, carried a basket which contained the offering of barley or fruits and the sacrificial knife, in procession through the city of Athens up to the acropolis.

 

Our pierced basket is enhanced with gold, and is adorned with palmette and acanthus leaves. The set is highlighted with two blue borders at the bottom of the basket and on the base. The table centerpiece is set upon four gilded lion feet.


Circa :1810
Dim: W: 12,6 in - D: 7,1in - H: 11,4in.
Dim: L:32cm, P:18cm, H:29cm.
