Questions about this piece?


Crafted in the Sèvres style, this wonderful piece- a large painted porcelain vase- was made in France and dates to the early 20th century. 

The vase features two large painted cartouches on either side, one of which depicts an intimate candlelit interior, the other an open and beautiful autumnal rural scene. The two faces form a delightful contrast, between the warm, welcoming figurative scene and the large open landscape. 

The remaining body of the vase is adorned with elegant flowing blue ribbons, intricately knotted, in an idiosyncratic but effective manner that marks this piece apart from other Sèvres style works. The blue lines have the appearance both of delightful floral motifs, and celtic-style knots, complemented by the gilding in between.

The mounted ormolu elements include the rosettes on the base, the finial on top, and the foliate mount to the base of the body.

The vase is marked in several places by the various artists who worked on it. The porcelain is signed 'Dumas', whilst one of the ormolu mounts is stamped 'AM' and there are various other stamps visible as shown in the photographs.
