Pair of mid 19th Century Baccarat enamelled glass vases
French, c. 1850
Height 35cm, diameter 12cm
Attributed to the famed designer and painter Jean François Robert (French, fl. 1843-1855), this pair of vases very finely show elaborate displays of flowers covering the front of each vase. The painted floral depictions are set on a white opaline backing which beautifully enhances the colourful effect of the flowers. The vases have unusual gilded frilly rims, which is a rare and fine feature on vases of this type.
