Description

This beautiful piece was made to commemorate the opening of the bridge "Alexander the III" which was built for the Paris universal exhibition in 1900. This porcelain salt dish depicts 2 interlocked swans and is gilded, painted and mounted on an Ormulu metal stand. It is not marked. Measures 17cm long by 11cm wide approx. Acquired at the Russian exhibition Pavilion, by the grand parents of the owner of the estate from which the lot came from.

Excerpt from Wikipedia: The Beaux-Arts style bridge, with its exuberant Art Nouveau lamps, cherubs, nymphs and winged horses at either end, was built between 1896 and 1900. It is named after Tsar Alexander III, who had concluded the Franco-Russian Alliance in 1892. His son Nicholas II laid the foundation stone in October 1896. The style of the bridge reflects that of the Grand Palais, to which it leads on the right bank.
The construction of the bridge is a marvel of 19th century engineering, consisting of a 6 metres (20 ft) high single span steel arch. The design, by the architects Joseph Cassien-Bernard (fr) and Gaston Cousin, was constrained by the need to keep the bridge from obscuring the view of the Champs-Élysées or the Invalides.

The bridge was built by the engineers Jean Résal and Amédée d'Alby (fr). It was inaugurated in 1900 for the Exposition Universelle (universal exhibition) World's Fair, as were the nearby Grand Palais and Petit Palais.
