Object Description

The contrast between the rich gilt bronze and the dark paint used to decorate this antique vase gives it the sumptuous richness required for a bold, glamorous interior.

The vase is cast entirely in bronze, with relief decorations in the Louis XIV style, and has been set on a circular marble base. The background plane of the relief has been painted in a rich black colour, which serves further to emphasise the lustrous finish of the gilt bronze.

The relief decorations show a variety of Baroque style motifs, including leaf patterns, Classical-style masks and figures, horses, rams’ heads and a particularly fine pair of handles decorated with the face of mythical creatures as well as snakes.
