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.

Condition

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.
