This is a PRETTY PAIR of antique porcelain vase (urns).Each one is ALL hand painted and decorated with 2 miniatures romantic scene, lady with an angel (from one side) and landscape (genre) scene from the other side, excellent hand painted miniature. Signed lower left Richard (see photos). The exceptional bronze cloisonné decoration, on the neck, and on the base gives more elegance and luxury to the vases.
Multiple rich cloisonné colors, decorated in flowers and plants motifs. The bronze ormolu mounted is a high quality casting and hand chiseling. Heavy casting, 2 handles with figural heads, give more elegance and luxury to the piece.
Please see photos carefully to admire the beauty of the work. H : 17 3/4 inches (45 cm).W : 6 1/4 inches (16 cm) maximum width. Diameter at the base : 4 3/4 inches (12 cm). Weight : 5 lbs 1.3 oz (2.3 kgs) approximately (for EACH vase). The heavy weight, reflects the thickness of the porcelain and the thickness of the bronze, and this technique was used in the late 19 century and early 20 century.
I detached both vase, cleaned and waxed the bronze to preserve it from oxidation (see last photo). No chips, cracks or any damage to the porcelain.
No dents or damage to the bronze. Minor oxidation to the bronze due to age and use.Original gold gilding bronze, with some discoloration consistent with age and use.
