Vieux Paris Porcelain Mantle Vase, Spill, Old French, Gilt, Hand Painted Antique:
Old Paris Porcelain
Old Paris Porcelain
Lovely 19th century French porcelain mantle vase with hand painted floral decoration and gilt accents. Like many old Paris Porcelain pieces, this vase is unmarked. The vase stands 10 5/8” (27 cm) tall and has a top width of 7 ½” (19cm). This piece was made with two holes in the front near the top edge, but I’m not sure what purpose they served. It has two clusters of applied leaves that extend out from the lower front section.
This wonderful old vase is in very good condition. The gilt decoration has wear in places, although the curved top front rim still retains most of its gold. There is one small shallow chip on the tip of one of the applied leaves located on the lower front section. The applied “vine” located on the left side, has a factory flaw “gap” in the porcelain near the top section (we have included three different views of this gap). This little separation in the porcelain occurred in the making during the firing process and is original to the piece. The back rim of the vase has one tiny glaze pop on the top edge (this occurred in the making as well).
