An Unusual Vase Held by Ormolu Leaves
The green vase that is placed inside the holder with ormolu leaves is shown in the ormolu book by Swantje Koehler. At first, I thought this was a piece I had not seen before, but after going through all of the pieces shown in the book, I found about 5 different vases that were used in the same leaf holder. This particular one is on page 62 as the first piece in the top row. There are 6 ormolu leaves in which three are the base and three are pushed up to hold the vase in place. A very attractive piece on a side table or hall table.
