Made in France, 19th century, gilded bronze. Height : 16" ; diameter (base) : 5 1/3". Good overall condition (see pictures), really heavy : solid bronze 7lb, probably need to be rewired, perfectly straight, really nice details. My name is Greg, I'm a French guy who had business in Charlotte NC for 3 years. Unfortunately, I had to move back to France because of a slow activity.
I fell in love with the US, particulary Charlotte! So now my only goal is to return to Charlotte, and for that I want to export French furnitures and antiques there!
This idea came because of my love for wood and history. It is a great area to find valuable furnitures and smalls because of the proximity of wealthy ski resorts like Megève and Chamonix Mont-Blanc. It is also close to Geneva (switzerland), about 45minutes by car. The Geneva area is one of the richest in Europe due to finance and whatchmaking.
Italy's not to far as well, 40 minutes. So when you're living and picking in this kind of environment, It is not rare to come across real pieces of art and history.
