description

A Pair of Gilt-Bronze and Champlevé Enamel Mounted Green Onyx and Rose de Valence Marble Pedestals.

Each with a square sectioned top and foliate enamelled apron, above an octagonal column with a gilt-bronze and enamelled collar and foot with palmette decoration, on chamfered enamelled square bases.

Champlevé enamelling, is similar to cloisonné in that the enamel is applied to discrete cells separated by metal. However, in champlevé, cells or troughs are cast into or cut away from the metal base, leaving a raised metal line between the cells which forms the outline of a design. The cells are then filled with molten or powdered glass and fired.
