Works of art from the 17th to the 19th century
His very rare pair of shuttle vases is like the 17th or 18th century vases inspired by the Antique.
They are carried on a cavetto pedestal and linked to the vase by a bead.
The body, like a ship, is oval in plan and curved in relation to the horizontal, like a prow and a rising stern. Large overhanging gadroons widen the base, a large falling edge balances the whole, giving this type of object a perfect look of simplicity.
The curved lid to hug the edge of the vase is crowned by a large gadrooned grip as well, completing the perfect balance of the design. Like any old work, it is a perfection for the eye, without faults of proportions.
But the covers are not interchangeable because the oval is different by a few millimeters, you could call it the beautiful imperfection born from the hand of man until the industrial age. The underside of the pedestal is probably flattened with a grain of barley hammer.
The peach blossom marble that can be seen from pink to purple in general is for our vases is of a hot pink, which varies in shades of pink almost white with Magenta veins, Mountbatten ...
Very good condition of origin for heavy marble objects. A few small breaks in the pudding of the pedestal and on the edges.
Old repairs, no major accident. Perfect to the eye.
