Circa 1880, Grand Tour bronze brazier, with a bowl at the top embossed with Classical figures. The bowl is held in place by 3 herons with rope protruding from their necks and mouths holding the bowl in position. The herons stand on a circular disc supported by 3 tapering legs with cast deer heads at the top and finish with acanthus leaves and hoof feet at the base. In the centre is a dancing God standing on a base with a turned column and an urn with petals at the top. The whole piece stands on a raised concave platform on 3 hairy paw feet. Very stylish piece, with great colour and patination.
