Questions about this piece?


Crafted in nineteenth century England, around the time of the Grand Tour and clearly demonstrating an interest in the art and decorative art of Italy and continental Europe, these beautiful porcelain vases, possibly Rockingham, are crafted in an indulgent floral Rococo style.

To the front they feature a pair of paintings showing famous Renaissance and Neoclassical paintings. One is that of Raphael's Madonna della Seggiola of 1513-14, a highly celebrated and renowed work currently in the Palazzo Pitti, having been in the collection of the Medici family since the 16th century; the other is that of the Madonna with Grapes, a work of 1640 by Pierre Mignard, a Classical French painter known for his mythological works and religious portraits.

On the other side they are painted with lavish Rococo flower bouquets, beautifully vibrant and varied in tone, and painted with great artistic skill, like the panels to the front. Other flower scenes are placed in the central divide aroudn the base, and the rich green ground of the porcelain is embellished with rich gilding and extensive scrolling elements and motifs, making these a beautiful pair of decorative antique pieces.
