This one is a great collectable size, not too small nor too big, charming and elegant and oh-so French. It has a gorgeous scrolled handles with raised relief, and the elegant classic French design. A very pretty piece, with wear to the gold as is to be expected, it's a beauty in all its faded glory. Measures 5"h x 8-3/4" with the handles.
