These Sèvres style vases are elegant works of decorative art, which have been finely painted, gilded and mounted in gilt bronze (ormolu). The vases are designed in a graceful Rococo style, which was characteristic of porcelain goods produced by the Sèvres factory in the 18th-Century. Crafted in the late 19th-Century, these vases are exquisite revival style works, which will add vibrancy and beauty to an interior.

The porcelain vases feature ovoid bodies, with waisted necks, which are covered by domed lids with gilt bronze egg-and-dart edges, and pineapple finials. The lids and necks are painted navy (or ‘bleu Sèvres) and decorated with gilt cartouches, scrollwork, stylised foliage, flowers and trophy motifs. On their fronts, the vase bodies feature Rococo style paintings of young lovers in garden settings, and their reverses are decorated with landscape paintings. These pictures are set within wonderfully-ornate gilt frames, against navy grounds. Each vase is fitted with two gilt bronze handles, which terminate in classical masks. The vases stand on splayed navy feet, decorated with gilt stylised foliate motifs. They are set on square gilt bronze bases, which have shaped sides and canted corners and are ornamented with leafy forms.
