Description A Fine Gilt-Bronze Mounted Sèvres Style Porcelain Coupe, The Bronze Mounts by Henri Picard.

The shaped two handled porcelain coupe having a green ground centred by white cartouches finely painted with flowers within gilded foliate borders. The dish is raised on a superb gilt-bronze rococo style base cast 'C'-scrolls and acanthus.

The important fondeur and doreur Henri Picard worked in Paris from 1831 to 1884, most notably for the Emperor Napoléon III. He was based in Paris at 6 rue Jarente from 1831 to 1839, before moving to 10 rue de la Perle. The firm was active until around 1890.

Celebrated for the high quality of his production, Henri Picard supplied many important patrons, including garnitures and table pieces for the petits appartements of Emperor Napoléon III at the Louvre. An important pair of twelve-light candelabra by Picard remain in the Musée du Louvre today.
