This large pair of vases, in porcelain, is painted, on a dark beige background, with large polychrome flower bouquets. They are arranged inside large springs, girded with a wide ribbon in gold and bright, decorated with a frieze of pastilles. The bottom of the vase, night blue color, is enhanced by a rich decoration, gold color, consisting of a wave movement punctuated with flowers that runs to the neck. The neck, decorated with a floret, has on both sides two small garlands of leaves that climb to the edge, slightly flared. These high quality ornaments are reminiscent of the prestigious production of the Sèvres factory. These vases rest on a very elegant ormolu base lined with two rows of pearls, and on the body between the reserves, there are two small ormolu falls showing a twig supporting some ivy leaves.
The back of these vases does not bear any mark, their great quality encouraged us to bring them closer to certain Parisian factories, we thought in turn that it could be Dagoty, Rousseau, Honoré, Dihl or other, they are numerous to have been able to compete with the Manufacture of Sevres of more especially as the artists who decorated the porcelains went from one to the other according to their engagements. If these bouquets of flowers painted with great delicacy inspired us the greatest respect, their composition on a colored background which seems unusual did not allow us to attribute them to one or the other.
The state of conservation of these vases is perfect, there is no restoration, the gilding of bronze is original.
End of the Restoration, around 1840-1850.
