Obviously produced by special order, a fact easily deduced by the unusual proportions of this work, rarely have we found such incredible detail in a relatively diminutive size!  The classic torchere and carquois de fleche, symbols of French power, appear over the pair of lovebirds, and amidst exquisite floral bouquets, sprays and swags.  Flaming urn finials lead the eye to the pair of mermaid figures whose tails become acanthus plumes.  More acanthus flourishes appear below.

Exquisite!
