    a late french 19th century inkstand in blue bresse enamel

    A small inkstand in blue Bresse enamel with gilt bronze mounts composed by an inkwell with its hinged lid and a cup finely decorated with arabesques in gold thread, rinceau and garlands made of small enameled pearls imitating turquoise pearls. It rests on a slightly flared foot in gilt bronze. The cup and the lid are hemmed with friezes of pearls in gilt bronze.

    The "Bressans" enamels always made in Bourg, in Bresse, are an unique expertise, dating back to the nineteenth century. Entirely handmade, they are easily recognizable by its decorations of arabesques and enamel relief in imitation of semi precious pearls.
