C1820 PAIR OF FRENCH OLD PARIS PORCELAIN VASES ELABORATE SCROLLING DESIGN
I have been very fortunate to have been able to purchase a single owner estate of very beautiful and choice, mostly French Empire period to Napoleon III porcelains, circa 1800 to 1870. All of them will be listed here on over the next week or so. Please see my other listings for more out of this strong grouping of antiques. All will be sold without reserve.
This listing is for a pair of circa 1820 French Old Paris vases. The vases measure 15 inches or 38 cm high, and are 8 ½ inches or 21.5 cm at their widest. The vases are made in two parts and held together with a rod and nut.
These very French romantic vases are very organic with the shapes and details of their bodies. They are high white glaze porcelain with emerald green ground, and accented with heavy applied gold. The fronts of the vases have elaborate and beautiful hand painted portraits of a man and woman seated in an outside setting. They are among lush woods, carved marble sculptures, and their faithful companion. The backs of the vases have elaborated hand painted floral cartouches.
The condition of these near 200 year old vases are as follows; there are old restorations to the both bases at the front. There is some age appropriate separation in the porcelain where the two pieces meet, only visible from the interior. The applied gold, so often badly worn on this type of vase, is in very good condition. A very colorful and elegant pair of vases. Please see the many photographs.
