An incredibly life-like pomegranate serves as the finial of this exceptional Louis XV-period silver gilt tureen by Jacques Bouchot. A superb example of high quality Rococo artistry of 18th-century French silver, this elegant vessel features beautiful decorative elements, from the delicate floral engraving and chased border on the lid, to the finely cast handles adorned with shells and scroll accents. The grace and sophistication of the Louis XV era informed all of the arts during this time, from fine arts such as painting and sculpture to the decorative crafts like cabinetry and porcelain with equal measure. In no area is this more evident than in the art of silver. However, because silver had its own intrinsic value as a material, many pieces form this period were melted down to fill the country's dwindling coffers. Thus, to find an example of 18th-centruy French silver, particularly one in such excellent condition, is remarkably rare.
