These beautiful and especially rare vases are cast and stand on a square pedestal foot, decorated with acanthus spears and a band of laurel leaves. The vase shaped main bodies display very unusual raised floral garlands, tied with ribbons, as well as horizontal bands of scrolls and oval medallions. The lower section of the main body is also decorated with a wide band of acanthus spear motifs. The high domed hinged covers also display a wide section of acanthus decoration and terminate in an unusual cast foliate motif finial. Both the main body and the hinged cover are engraved with a contemporary Crest and the interiors are gilded. Both vases are in excellent condition, and are fully marked in the foot and on the cover. The work of William Holmes is nearly always particularly fine and he was an exponent of the Neo-Classical style.

Height: 7.5 inches, 18.75cm.
Diameter at the rim: 3.1 inches, 7.75cm
Weight: 31oz the pair.
