Description

The vases take a Campana, or bell-shaped, form, and feature twin ormolu handles which are set with precious jewels. Their bodies are parcel gilt and they are decorated in the style of the Sevres manufacturers: there is a central cartouche on the centre of each vase depicting scenes of figures and animals landscapes. The cartouches are set on turquoise ground, and the bodies of the vases are supported by circular fluted and flaring ormolu supports, which in turn are set on square ormolu bases with canted angles.
