    Ewer and Basin Jean Gaillard (active between: 1695 - 1754) , Goldsmith Rock crystal and gold 1727 or 1730 France

  • E. E. Salum

    The rock crystal ewer and basin pictured at the left was made by Jean Gaillard in the early 18th century and once belonged to Marie Antoinette. This cleverly designed piece has solid gold mounts and a handle carved in the shape of a young Triton wrestling with a snake-like monster. On the lid (or cover) is a small barking dog. Apparently, in order to pour the liquid, one must blace their thumb in the mouth of dog which releases the cover. 1727 or 1730
