pair of Kang-Hi porcelain vases, gilt bronze mount - Louis XVI period

The body of the vases decorated with vases of flowers and utensils on a white background has flower cartridges in the upper part.
The neck and the base are in chiselled and gilded bronze, Louis XVI period
This Kang Hi period (1662 - 1722) marks the beginning of the heyday of Chinese porcelain, which lasted throughout the 18th century. Manufacturing took off considerably, and the two continents influenced each other.

These mounted objects are testimonies of the manufacture of mercerial merchants who excelled in mounting gilded bronze on porcelain of various origins.
These objects were very popular in the 18th century and adorned the most prestigious collections.
