Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
They date from about 1660 (Italian style) and depict a face crowned with a bay wreath and surmounted by two dolphins heads and their intertwined tails forming a handle. These masks were formerly handles belonging to a large scale citrus tree vase, very likely to be custom made because of its size and quality.
They are gorgeous decorative objects, witness of the great French craftmanship in ceramics.
