Today we are very delighted to offer for sale a truly stunning antique Viennese ormolu and enamel miniature parlor set! This petit miniature set is a triumph of Viennese craftsmanship and style! Crafted in Vienna in the early 20th century, this small treasure is expertly and intricately crafted. This minute masterpiece depicts a wonderful Victorian Rococo gilded ormolu grand salon suite, composed of a canapé (sofa) and two fauteuils (armchairs). The seats and seat backs of the suite all feature hand painted Francois Boucher/Pillement/Watteau-inspired pastoral scenes. The scenes depict lovely young noblewomen and gallant noblemen frolicking in a lovely country side. The armchairs and settee feature wonderful c-scroll rococo legs and detailing. Set presents beautifully and is in very good antique condition, with very minimal shelf wear and patina from being on display in a curio cabinet. This piece, along with other equally wonderful pieces, all part of the same suite, were brought back from Vienna by our consignors grand-parents, and were carefully displayed in an equally wonderful curio cabinet in their drawing room. Precious and delicate, this petit treasure set is a must have for any high caliber fine miniature collection…A piece not to be missed!
