Flask and stopper 3D Model
Silver, parcel-gilt and niello, blue glass set with garnets, made by Jules Wièse, manufactured by François-Désiré Froment-Meurice, about 1851, France. Museum no. 168:1&2-1854.
This flask was purchased for £66 16s from the Great Exhibition, London, 1851, at which François-Désiré Froment-Meurice was awarded a Council Medal. The flask bears the mark of Jules Wièse, whose association with Froment-Meurice began when he entered his workshop in 1839. “The visitor to the Great Exhibition may search in vain through the whole length and breadth of the vast edifice for works more truly beautiful of their class, than those contributed by M. FROMENT-MEURICE, the eminent goldsmith and jeweller of Paris (Art Journal Illustrated Catalogue).
