Vase Candelabre

Monumental in size, the vase supports the candelabra made of natural lily branches.

The River by Caffieri

Grand Chandelier

This elaborate chandelier made in late 18th century includes gilt-bronze chains, Bohemian crystal flowers as well as a profusion of crystal drops and balls raining down from the umbrella-shaped row of arms near the top and from the multiple branches below.

Service

The "Service à la Russe" (French for "service in the Russian style") is a manner of dining that involves courses being brought to the table sequentially, and the food being portioned on the plate by servants (usually at a sideboard in the dining room) before being given to the diner.

Tureen Stand

This beautiful Tureen Stand can be used for serving desserts or other decorative food arrangements. It is best used with the dish ring, for ultimate appearance.

Butter Dish

Before refrigerators existed, a covered dish made of crystal, silver, or porcelain housed the butter. A French butter dish, keeps butter fresh by using water to keep the butter away from the air, thereby keeping it fresh.

Central Silver Dish

This silver plate and cover is very similar to those in the Orloff service, and it is marked by the silversmith responsible for many pieces in that celebrated set, Jacques-Nicolas Roettiers in 1781.

Candlestick

This Candlestick was also made by Parisian silversmith Jacques-Nicolas Roettiers in 1784.

Sevres Vase

This Sèvres 'Vase Grec à Ornements' made out of Biscuit porcelain in around 1764. The author is probably Jean-Claude Duplessis.

Dish Ring

This dish ring is a refined example of aristocratic dining. Such rings were used on the dining table as a base for a larger bowl or plate that was laden with beautifully arranged food.

Decanter

A decanter is a vessel that is used to hold the decantation of a liquid (such as wine) which may contain sediment. Decanters, which have a varied shape and design, have been traditionally made from glass or crystal.
