Antique 1890's Dresden Urn Vases Ram Head Gold Floral Cabbage Rose Matched Pair For SaleThis sale is for a matching pair of antique Dresden urn vases with pedestal bases; they feature a ram's head at the base of the open handles, extensive gold trim and vibrant hand painted floral wreath designs with cabbage roses on both front and back sides of the vase; there is a raised feather design at the bottom of the urn at the baseattachment, also trimmed in gold; exact age is unknown, they are a recent estate purchase from a home with many high end antique items. Both have the same markings: the under glaze Dresden artist logo/marking is partially obscured by the metal base insert plates, directly below is "Dresden" in blue under glaze with "Germany" in green below that, which appears to be hand painted on the glaze; there is also an incised number of "7058" on the unglazed base edge and another stamp on an opposite corner, possibly a secondary distributor, the lettering is partially worn/partially obscured with ancient rubs from shelf dust, possibly "Bromere Company" (?); not an expert on Dresden pieces/markings so will leave fullidentificationto those who are more familiar with it. The vases are roughly 7.5" tall, bases are about 2 1/8" x 2 1/8"; they are superb display pieces and in very good condition given their age; there isminimal wear to gold trim and hand painted details; the floral designs have exceptionally nice color retention; the "lids" are firmly in place, do not know if they were originally glued in place or if done at a later date. There are several (very old) novice repairs that are not immediately obvious (and could be improved on easily with professional restoration); one of the eight horns had a section broken out and glued back in, one or both (?) finials appear to be glued into place; one lid has a fine hair line crack in lid, the other lid has two; repairs are not glaring, only seen on close examination; they will need some additional detail cleaning, we only removed the light surface dust.
