Lot 0001
A 19th century Sevres style neoclassical hand painted urn mounted in bronze. The urn is hand painted in vignettes front and back; the front depicts cherubs in a pastoral setting signed by the artist, Collot; the back is painted with musical instruments. The softly colored enamels are enhanced by a blue/green shaded to cream background stepped up with gilding.

The urn is heavily mounted in bronze with lion head handles pierced with rings, a bronze collar, and a footed Rococo base. It has all the earmarks of a Sevres piece and was most likely a blank decorated in a Paris workshop. Collot was known to have painted for the Sevres factory. The artwork is finely painted and the mounts are very nicely chased.


The urn is in excellent condition; the cover has an inch-long tight hairline extending out from the bronze finial. The bronze mounts retain an aged patina.
