ANTIQUE PAIR OF GILT BRONZE DESK TIDIES
Height: 4¾ inches / 12 cm
Stock number: 856732/0121
A charming pair of gilt bronze figures of boys holding baskets on their heads, one with an open basket and the other with a mother-of-pearl opening lid, all on circular marble bases. I have never come across this pair of figures before and can only assume that these would have been used as desk tidies, but they may well have been used as something else.
