The cassolette evolved from the grand urn which explains its shape, but has persevered through the ages due to its uncanny antique beauty. This pair of antique French cassolettes, fashioned from exquisitely veined agate stone blocks, has been lavished with cast bronze d'ore ram mounts honoring the Neoclassical Louis XVI style from the lid to just above the rounded base. Designed to accentuate the mantel or buffet, they are still considered the mark of a refined and elegant taste today!
Circa 1890s.
