Favourite Item
These antique cobalt blue porcelain urns are the work of the famed 19th Century Parisian maker Raingo Freres. Although made in the late 19th Century, they are based on a model built by the 18th Century French maker Jean Dulac. They feature fine ormolu mounts, including on their lids, which terminate in pinecone finials. The lids open to reveal a deep, wide dish, originally designed for holding potpourri. The handles of each of the urns take the form of lions heads which are joined together by drapes, with a pierced ormolu band sitting atop the rim of each dish. The urns are set on gilt bronze bases decorated with acanthus leaf forms, which inturn are set upon a square plinths.
The intense cobalt blue colour of the porcelain, juxtaposed against the fine gold finish of the ormolu, will make these urns a striking addition to any contemporary or antique style interior.
