Minton Compote

I found this compote HERE on ebay for an outrageous price -but wow is it spectacular! I actually have the plate from the TOP of this (the base is missing ) that I got for about $10. It's really beautiful -I love the turquoise and the weaving and the light amount of gilding and have it hanging on my wall.
I just have the plate part exactly like this

But the BASE is where it's at! it's intensely intricate -I could see it as a centerpiece on a very modern Saarinen tulip table -the one with the walnut wood top. The contrast would be striking there, or perhaps just the classic white; I can't decide.... can you see it or am I off?
