A plated Belle Epoche petit bronze (Britannia metal) jug in the form of the head of Neptune as the pouring lip and the vessel as a net under the sea. A marvellous and bizare work of art, the handle being a sea nymph lifting a net with a putti clinging to the underside of the net. With-in the net are fish, crustaceans and molluscs caught in a swirling, twisting sea and net combination.

Unmarked but surely French.

330mm high.  155mm dia.

Some repairs to the foot and some wear to the relief casting. Condition is generally good.
