This fine pair of Neoclassical style vases are by Maison Millet, the renowned 19th Century Paris-based firm, which was established in 1853.
The vases are crafted in a vibrantly coloured porphyry and take an ovoid form. A band of finely cast gilt bronze is mounted to the top of each of the waisted necks, and supports porphyry lids which are surmounted by a gilt bronze finial in pomegranate form.
The vase bodies are encircled with very fine pierced gilt bronze mounts of vines and roses, and feature twin handles of grotesque masks in gilt bronze to either side. The lower section of the bodies of the vases are encircled with further gilt bronze mounts of acanthus leaf form, leading to waisted bases, with further gilt bronze banding in foliate form. The vases stand on square porphyry plinths, which are further mounted onto wider square-form gilt bronze bases.
