I don't know when I've ever found a more complete and elegant and functional item of antique Napoleon III (mid-Victorian) Era papier mache item - such a beauty to use in table service or wall art, or to show off your collection of small and elegant antique items. This one is French, but of the fine quality we typically think of as coming from the English firm, Jennens & Bettridge. I don't find a signature on this one.  Full measurements noted on the photos. 

Very good to excellent condition for age and type. There are no breaks nor serious losses to mother of pearl (a few very small ones in the floral centerpiece). The finish to the papier mache remains in fine condition, as well. Fine item, and just in from France.
