FINEST 19TH SEVRES PORCELAIN COMPOTE WITH ORMOLU, 2 GILT SATYR HANDLES AROUND A MOUNTED COBALT BLUE PAINTED BOWL FEATURING SCENIC PANELS SIGNED "C. LABARRE"

This compote represents the highest craftsmanship of Sevres quality having the finest painted panels with the shadow detail and scenic background along with the most magnificent gilt bronze mounts I have ever seen. Look for yourself at the fine details and composition of the Satyr mounts and you will agree that Sevres did not manufacture quality any higher than this monumental piece encompasses.

Center panels are present on front and rear of the piece each framed with raised enamel gold. The front panel is signed by the artist “C. LABARRE” at lower right. The rear panel is equally detailed as the front panel which is a nice feature. Pictures cannot do this piece justice. I tried to highlight the detail of the painting along with the Satyr bronzes to give you the feel of the magnificent detail of this masterpiece.
