Description

A Fine Napoléon III Gilt-Bronze Mounted and Sèvres Style Porcelain-Inset Onyx Guéridon.

The circular top inset with a large circular porcelain plaque painted with Madame de Pompadour in her study signed ‘(AM)P. Juéry’ within gilt bronze border. Surrounded by nine smaller oval portraits of noble ladies, each titled beneath. On a cylindrical onyx column mounted within three large acanthus scrolls united by floral swags raised on tripartite base with inset guilloche frieze, raised on castors.
