A pair of late 19th century, french, porcelain and gilt bronze mounted cassolettes. Each with a pinatum finial above blue porcelain dome inverting to reveal a gilt candle sconce, supported by triform legs with rams head masks and hoof feet, hung with chains and standing on a stepped circular base with bead decoration. The porcelain body painted with panels of flowers and pink ribbons.  Original gilt.

Circa 1880
