Measuring over one metre in height each, these porphyry vases are impressive, grand antique pieces, ideally suited to a Neoclassical style interior. Their ovoid bodies are built from porphyry, a beautiful flecked purple stone which has been highly prized as a material of wealth and power for millenia.
Each vase is mounted with twin scrolling gilt bronze handles, decorated with acanthus leaves, palmettes and scrolls. Further gilt bronze bands adorn the the rims and lower sections of the vases, with each vase mounted onto a square gilt bronze base.
These majestic vases would be best placed on a pair of antique stone pedestals and displayed in a grand entranceway or hall.
