Questions about this piece?


Each porcelain vase in this matching pair is of elongated column krater form. The ovoid body of each vase sits upon a waisted socle that flairs into a circular base, which in turn stands upon a square plinth. The curved neck of each vase opens into a wide, lipped rim. The body of each vase is mounted with twin swan neck handles.

The front of the body of each vase features a gilt-framed cartouche shaped panel painted with a landscape scene. The unlocated painted scene on each vase depicts a castle set beside a lake and surrounded by a verdant landscape. The reverse of each vase features a similar cartouche shaped frame, this time containing delicately painted floral bouquets. The ground of the vases is a beautiful unadulterated lapis blue, which is parcel gilt at certain structural points, such as the lip, the edges of the plinths, and the mountings of the swan neck handles.

The vases are marked underneath.
