Product Details

  • We offer this superb antique English twin handled creamware veilleuse or food warmer applied with lion heads and dating from around 1785. The lightly potted veilleuse is of cylindrical shape with intertwined strap handles applied either side with floral and leaf terminals. Straps and small cut out floral designs are applied around the body with lion heads holding rings in their mouths applied in relief to either side of the body. An acanthus scroll design is applied in relief around the shaped candle opening to one side of the body. The veilleuse is not marked but is typical of examples originating from Leeds.
