1800 Art Nouveau Pairpoint Footed & Gilded Plateau Magnificent Piece :
1800 ART NOUVEAU PAIRPOINT
Plateaus have been used to display treasured items since they were first manufactured in 1890. The lady of the house used the plateau to show off her favorite cut glass, silver items, elegant perfumes, any item whose appearance would be enhanced by its use. This elegant, Art Nouveau, gilded plateau would do just this as shown with a porcelain powder box. The vintagr powder box is not included.The beveled and etched glass is removable for ease in cleaning and shipping. This gorgeous, antique plateau measures 2 inches high, 16 inches in diameter between the feet and 12 inches in diameter at the glass top.
The plateau sits upon four, elegantly, decorated and scrolled feet. The open pierced design is that of flowers growing along a leafy vine, interspersed with oval medallion shapes. The top outer rim is made up of floral and leaf facets. The look is very elegant and chic.
The plateau bears the hallmark of the Pairpoint Corporation organized in 1880 in New Bedford, Massachusetts. This hallmark was used on silver plated items. This upscale plateau was gilded by the company instead of being silver plated. The company manufactured glass items so our guess is that the glass insert was also manufactured by Pairpoint. The glass has some very minor scratching but the gilding is in great condition for its age. There are a few bent facets along the outer rim but we decided to let the new owner decide if they want to straighten them. A great piece that would enhance any room and any treasured items placed upon it. A great piece for the antique dealer to display valued items for sale in an antique shop or antique show.
