By Baccarat (French, founded 1764)
The feminine floral design of these vases is balanced by their masculine satyr-mask handles, showcasing the thoughtful artistry of Baccarat's work.
The opaline glass vases in this pair are by Baccarat, one of the leading producers of luxury glass in the world. The vases are of traditional form, each with an ovoid body above a circular foot, and each with a waisted neck and flared rim above. The milky-white opaline glass bodies of the vases are painted with intricate floral bouquets: sprays of flowers of a host of colours and types adorn the centres of the bodies. Each vase features parcel gilding and turquoise banding to the foot and the rim, and each is adorned with twin satyr mark handles.
See Christine Vincendeau, Les Opalines, Luçon, 1998, p. 96, 136-137 for an illustration and discussion of a similar pair of vases.
