A Fine Pair of Gilt-Bronze Mounted Cobalt Blue Sèvres Style Porcelain Vases and Covers.
Each vase is of amphora form with domed covers, scrolled handles and square section re-entrant gilt-bronze plinth bases. The body of each vase is of cobalt blue ground enriched with fine gilt tooling and centred to the front with a finely painted cartouche of a pastoral scene in the eighteenth century manner of Watteau and to the reverse with a landscape. The inside of each cover inscribed in underglaze red ‘Offert par le Duc de Richelieu a Madame Campan’, under interlaced ‘L’s’ in blue.
French, Circa 1890.
