The two vases are grand in size and finely crafted from porcelain, gilt bronze and onyx. Each vase features a pair of handles cast as dragons with a whirling tail that attach to the pear-shaped porcelain body. The central frontal cartouche on each vase shows an elegant Renaissance beauty with a red velvet dress draped in jewellery, with the reverse cartouche painted with a castle landscape scene. The cream and gilt arabesque ground on each body is complemented with brightly coloured scrolls and leaves on the neck and around the cartouches.
One vase with a pierced gilt bronze base, the other without, with both vases set on a square onyx plinth, which in turn is set upon an ormolu stand with dragon feet.
Signed ‘Dapoigny’ on the painting after the Sèvres porcelain painter.
