Impressed 111Y, incised F10X, enamel 35, and the crossed swords scored through. Winged Eros stroking Psyche, both partially nude, both wrapped in a trailing floral swag, which encircles the two. The female with loosely draped and flowing robe. Both on a square base with gilt banding.

As viewed under raking light, no inconsistencies in texture or pigment are evident. The fingers and toes are intact. The floral garland has a negligible degree of chips & losses, and is in great condition for its age. having a DIA 1/5" chip to the backside corner of the base. The garland to the backside has a skillful repair (a 1" section of the vine appears to have been reattached). Beautiful condition for its age and detail. CP
