Pair of French Gilded Porcelain Baskets ‘Corbeilles’
Provenance: The Collection of Nelson Doubleday, Jr.
Created in France in the mid-19th century, circa 1860, the baskets are decorated with delicate flowers and lavish gilding. They stand on rectangular bases of clean white porcelain with gilded outlines. The lattice work of the baskets lends delicacy and light to the design.
Originally this pair of elegant oval-shaped antique French porcelain pierced baskets (corbeilles) would have been placed on a table to hold fruit. They would be lovely on any table or sideboard. Their timeless beauty will enhance any room.
