Description

Beautiful, elaborate, and featuring an exceptionally grand and intricate decorative design, these magnificent porcelain vases were made by the Dresden Porcelain Manufactory in the Rococo style in Germany in the early 20th century.

Featuring both lids and bases in a coherent stylistic scheme, the porcelain vases are painted, gilded, and heighted with various sculptural elements, both floral and figurative. From the top, they feature rocaille cartouches surmounted with crowns held aloft by floating and standing putti. The large, baluster body of the vases are applied with two pairs of seated children or putti with wreaths on either side, with flowers decked between them in rings that extend over the handles and down.

To the front of each piece there is a charming Rococo scene with painted park landscapes, featuring a Watteau couple in both, with large painted floral bursts and bouquets to the reverse. To the base and to the neck the porcelain is heightened with light purple and turqoise tones. The vases feature the Dresden underglaze blue mark, alongside the painter number 32.

Beautiful works of the German Rococo revival style, they represent some of the very best Dresden porcelain: exquisitely expressive decorative works of art, that provide an unmatched antique glow and presence.
