Questions about this piece?


Featuring a wonderful combination of beautiful Chinese cloisonné enamel vases and sumptuously ornate French gilt-bronze mounts, these fine pieces are a superb synthesis of cross-global crafts and stunning decorative displays pieces.

Of ovoid form, with flared rims, the vases are extensively applied across the whole surface area with an intricate and elaborate array of floral and natural motifs. In a closely-bound but uncrowded decorative design, they imitate a beautiful idyllic floral undergrowth populatated with birds and insects such as butterflies.

The bronzes, on the other hand, are French, both the pierced acanthus crown to the top, and the magnificent, elaborate, and ostentatious base, featuring four Chinese style griffins. Sumptuously gilded and immaculately bright and radiant, they frame the fine enamel work beautifully, offering a stunning showcase of the combined grandeur of French and Chinese crafts.
