Description

19th century very unusual gilt metal stand with handles, holding porcelain stunning turquoise blue ground hand painted bowl with bevelled mirrored top.
Top folds up to stand up straight or tilt providing a mirror to use at different levels depending on the angle placed. This top mirrored and gilt metal section can also be removed to display just bowl and stand only if desired.
Inside the bowl are lovely hand painted flowers, surrounded by gilt bands, and a centre gilt metal medallion of Minerva's head.
Size is 7 inches wide handle to handle by 5.5 inches high closed, or 9.5 inches with mirror fully raised.
Although this was possibly originally for a ladies dressing table, it would now grace any table on its own, or holding small cherished items.
A rare and lovely piece in very good condition.
