A Pair of Antique Vienna Pedestal Lidded Porcelain Vases With Hand Painted Decoration (Code 7615)
A fine pair of late 19th Century Vienna porcelain small covered vases. They are decorated in a deep cobalt blue glaze with gilt and jewelled white enamel detail. The vase bodies have mask head handles which are gilded. The lids are removable and are clearly the originals. The bodies are finely hand painted with classical scenes and characters including Menelaus and Hector. There are painted titles to the bases but these are quite rubbed and difficult to make out. Each has the blue beehive mark to the base.
Fine looking examples and a nice size allowing them to fit in most display cabinets. Well painted decoration with good detail.
Minor gilt wear. One of the lids knops has been broken off and carefully re-glued, this being hard to detect. Rusting to the metal joint rods and nuts as typical for age. Wear to the gilding where the lids sit. Overall good for period and they display very nicely as you can see.
Height 21 cms (8.25 inches) inc lid
Width 8 cms (3.2 inches) at base
Weight 998 grams (before packing)
