ANTIQUE CHINESE ENAMELLED CLOISONNE BRASS CONTAINER ( Item # 43227 )
 
For today’s auction, we are featuring a antique Chinese made Cloisonne brass storage container.
Cloisonne is a method of enamel decoration of metal surfaces, such as vases and jewel boxes. Metal filaments (which form the cloisons or separating elements) are attached at right angles outlining the design to be used. These miniature compartments are filled with colored enamel in paste form and the object is then heated in order to fuse the enamel to the surface and develop its transparency and permanent colors. When finished, the enamel and cloisons are closely joined in a smooth even surface showing the pattern in various colors definied by the metal partitions which prevented their fusing with one another. This metal treatment was probably invented in the Middle East and has been highly perfected by the Chinese, Japanese and the French.
 
This brass container features a lovely floral pattern which is compromised of a color palette containing light and dark greens, whites, yellows, purples, cranberry, rose and blue hues. The colors of the piece have held up rather nicely despite this piece’s age.
The container is in very good condition with a 5/16” chip on one side and a 3/16” black scuff mark on one of the green leaves. On the interior of the piece, we are noting that there are 2 small nicks on the interior of the lid (where the base metal is revealed) and there are 2 nicks (1/8” and .25” ) on the container’s base. These nicks also reveal the base metal.
A very nice piece of Chinese metalwork!

ANTIQUE IMDO DECILITRE WINE MEASURING CUP Hallmarks 1800's ( Item # 43207 )
 
We have today an unusual item up for auction: an antique pewter IMDO decilitre measuring cup. Great old Hallmarks
This old measuring tool stands 4.5" tall, measures 2.25" in width and has a depth level of 3 - 3/16".
There is a hand written label on the base that seems to indicate that this piece may be French in origin.
It has a small spout with a thumb-opened lid that opens / closes smoothly. It is stamped DECILITRE on the handle.
We here at the store do not know whether this measuring cup was used in a bar or pub or possibly in an a laboratory. There are circular punches around the upper edge with letters / marks within them which may be a yearly certfication of some sort by a weights & measures inspector.
Fascinating to look at and interesting to speculate about, this old measuring tool is in very good condition and is sure to evoke many a "What is THAT?" conversation by one's friends / colleagues.
Acquire this piece of Franco / Anglo history today! 

Glazed Terra Cotta Statue David After Cantagni ( Item # 24307 )
This is a glazed Terra Cotta statue figure of Davld slaying Goliath after Cantagni.
We estimate it to be from the late 18th Century or early 19th Century. 
Overall it is in very good condition with glaze off in exposed edges such as nose sides areas, knee and on one toe.  The sword is missing.      It is an excellent representing of the Biblical tale as restructured in a late Renaissance fashion. The piece has a slightly faded mark of a cock rooster with long tail, spread feet and large cockals.    .
It was soft paste porcelain which was glazed and fired in the kiln double time. It is in good and stable condition.   These types of Biblical sculptural scenes and personalities were recently captured beginning in the the end of the 18th century and carried through into modern times.   
This piece has been appraised for $1000 and we have it listed for $750 here. 

RISINI ANTIQUE BRONZE ORIENTAL HEAD SIGNED ( Item # 40631 )
This is a nice old genuine Bronze Sculpture of an Oriental Head .  It appears to be signed Risini or Rizini  and has the number 4 and another that I can't quite make out.
The piece measures 7" x 4".
It came from a career soldier who fought in 3 wars and as such we are not sure where exactly it came from.  Very unique and base shows age, wood with crazing.
