Object Description

Pair of Empire style malachite and gilt bronze vases
French, early 20th Century
Height 50cm, width 22cm, depth 19cm

Each vase in this pair, crafted from gilt bronze mounted malachite, is baluster shaped in a manner characteristic of the grand and elegant Empire style. Supported by a square gilt bronze base, each vase stands on a curvilinear gilt bronze stem. Furthermore, each vase is surmounted by a cover that culminates in a gilt bronze pomegranate finial. Most strikingly, the vases are mounted with twin eagle-head handles, the eagles’ heads holding beautifully rendered gilt bronze foliate garlands that drape across the front of the vases’ bodies.
