pair of porcelain vases from china and golden bronze XIXth century

The taste for Far Eastern art developed in England during the reign of George, Prince of Wales, Regent between 1811 and 1820, and then King under the name of George IV from 1820 to 1830. The Brighton Pavilion, an Anglo-American madness Indo-Chinese was the extreme witness. His taste mirrored that of his mother, Queen Charlotte, who a few years before had assembled a large collection of Chinese porcelain at Buckingham House, and already owned in one of his residences a "Japan room" with furniture made in England in the Chinese taste. George sets up a "chinese room" on the ground floor of his London residence at Carlton House, the interior design of which was carried out under the direction of the English architect Henry Holland and by many French craftsmen.
According to the engravings, this piece, mainly with a red and black background, was adorned with panels depicting Chinese scenes, punctuated by pilasters and arabesques in oriental style, the ceiling adorned at its center an important dragon.
In the pavilion of Brighton, the exotic inspiration is present in both architecture and decoration, combining Chinese and Indian influences and we must not forget that these sets and objects that participate in the decor remain an elitist formula, reserved for the aristocratic class or the upper middle class, a sign of social differentiation.
