Please be patient there are 23 photos to be loaded in this sale.
What an absolutely amazing pair of floral figural Old Paris porcelain spill vases. (A spill vase, stood on the fireplace mantle and was used to hold rolled strips of paper called spills which were used to light fires and Tobacco items, a better home would have matching vases on either side of the mantle.) These are hand painted with sprays of flowers and oh so heavily gilt in gold. The vases are figural with a flower like design. Truly stunning. Each is incised on the bottom 34. Each is approx. 8 1/2" tall.
For those not familiar with the term "Old Paris" here is a great article we found on antique-china-porcelain-collectibles site on the internet (GREAT SITE!!)
Old Paris Porcelain, or as the French say, Vieux Paris Porcelain, refers not to a single manufacturer, but to more than thirty porcelain sources based within the City of Paris between the mid 1700's until around 1870, the end of the Second Empire. The term was not actually used until the latter part of that period.
The various Paris artisans, mostly situated in the northeast side of Paris, honed their skills in a hurry or went out of business. At the outset, they had to compete with King Louis XV's own Royal Manufactory at Sevres, just 18 miles to the southwest of the city. To minimize competition, the king even enacted laws that severely restricted the activities of other porcelain manufacturers. But as the impact of porcelain became clearer as to its positive impact on the French economy, Old Paris porcelain enjoyed more latitude in its operations.
In fact, Old Paris manufacturers also benefited not only from intense competition from one another, but in some cases were creatively and financially nimbler than even the Royal manufactory at Sevres. Many Old Paris porcelain artisans had their own patrons from the French nobility. They catered more quickly to changing styles and customs. By the turn of the nineteenth century, nearly all Old Paris porcelain was the hard-paste variety, thanks to the earlier discovery of kaolin near Limoges.
No porcelain mark ever came to be synonymous with Old Paris china. Click here to see why there is no real "official" Old Paris Mark. Actually, around 70% of the production during its era had no marks at all. Many of the Old Paris artisans worked with blanks or "white wares" that had originally been produced at Limoges and even at Sevres. Their jobs in those cases were strictly to act as decorators, but magnificent works came from these people. Their stories are much like the emergence of fine porcelain in Dresden as originally it was in the orbit of the manufactory at Meissen.
Names such as Dihl, Nast, Dagoty, Neppel, Edouard Honore, Denuelle, Clauss, Gille, and Petit all distinguished themselves as Old Paris porcelain artisans, winning many honors and achieving great financial success. Their works ranged in style from neo-classical, rococo revival, to renaissance revival.
With the sensitivity to changing times, the various exponents of Old Paris porcelain are among the finest European porcelain. Estimated shipping weight, (packaged) is 3 lbs 8 oz in a 15 x 15 x 15 box.

Please note: We put up a very ecclectic collection of items and are not experts in every area,
so descriptions are our best guess as to what something is. While we try to research each item to the
best of our ability, it is the buyer's responsibility to know what they are buying.
TERMS OF SERVICE
is ALL we do for a living, husband and wife (Norb & Marie) working together, while we home school our kids on our farmette in Rural Delmarva. We have worked very hard to build our little business and it is very important to us. We try and do business the old fashioned way and have a rather simple outlook.
Treat all of your customers as if they are family.
Be courteous, answer emails, be fair in all your deallings and try and make friends of each and every customer.
BUT... with 's new star rating and the rate increases in the U.S. Postal rates we needed to define and explain our methods of business.
ONE - Who We Deal With
We sell and ship world wide to anywhere, so please email us for a quote to wherever you happen to be.
TWO - Shipping Charges
We charge shipping based on the USPS system, we will sometimes ship via courier if we can get it to you within the same time frame or faster. We add a reasonable cost for materials, normally that is $2.00 for regular sized packages. For small flat items $1.00. That covers the expense of boxes, envelopes, bubble wrap, peanuts, (We only use new packing materials, life is too short to scrounge through dumpsters). For larger items that take a larger more expensive box, we charge a little more, to cover the special box, example paintings or lamps. For oversized items or items that will take special attention to package, (Build a crate, wrap a zillion things individually, etc.), we ask you to email us for a quote on shipping prior to the sale ending. If you do not, we charge the same amount as if you did. In other words WE NEVER GOUGE OUR CLIENTS SHIPPING COSTS!!
THREE - International Shipping
We charge shipping based on the USPS international system. The rates follow the same guidelines as number two above, though for international customers we add an additional $1.00 to cover the extra paperwork involved in international shipping. If an amount goes over $50 in value we will only ship it with Priority or Express Mail, regardless how small an item. That allows for us to have international tracking. There is no tracking available on First Class Mail.
FOUR - Insurance
's policies no longer allows us to charge the client for insurance. But... we still apply insurance to any item that goes over $27.00 in value. We reserve the right to use the insurance carrier of our choice. Sometimes that is Postal or the Carrier's Insurance and sometimes that is a private insurance company such as DSI or U-PIC/Shipsurance. If we use a private insurance company the package will not be marked insured, but it will be.
FIVE - Methods of Payment Accepted
We aoffere by 's rules and try and stay abreast of their changes. We accept Paypal. Paypal also accepts the major credit cards, or we also take Credit Cards Directly over the phone, (MC, VISA, DISCOVER, AMERICAN EXPRESS, CARTE BLANCHE, DINERS CLUB, JCB) Bottom line, whatever method is most convenient for you.
SIX - Time Frame To Pay
We ask all sales to be paid for in the fastest possible time frame. (This is all we do for a living and we need the money to pay the bills and buy more unique and fun items to put up on )
SEVEN - Shipping Time Frame
We make every effort to ship in a timely manner. We are home schooling the boys, listing tons of items, and as like any of us are just plain swamped, so we have to schedule a special time to pack and ship. We ship on a first paid, first shipped basis. (We do not ship any item until it has been paid and the funds have cleared.) With the ebb and flow of payments we manage to get everything out of the door within one week. If there is a rush, we will make every effort to work with you in getting it out of the door faster. As you can see from our response, we do not disappoint. OF COURSE, items that need special attention, crating, etc adds to the time frame of those items.
Finally, EIGHT - Communication
Please feel free to contact us at anytime, with any question or comment. Unless we are out of town we make an effort to answer all emails as quickly as possible.
