Object Description

Sèvres style porcelain vase with Neoclassical style gilt bronze mounts
French, 19th Century
Height 120cm, width 50cm, depth 41cm

This beautiful ovoid-shaped vase is crafted from porcelain and mounted with gilt bronze. The front of the body of the vase is painted with a scene of young couples cavorting in a landscape, executed in the Rococo style, and signed ‘E. Collet’. The reverse of the vase features a similarly painted image of a chateau by a lake. The deep blue ground porcelain is parcel gilt throughout with wonderful scrolled and chased motifs, which accent the gilt bronze mounts.

The body of the vase is raised above a parcel gilt porcelain socle, which is set above a shaped gilt bronze base. The vase features a slender porcelain neck and is topped by a metal lid—a replacement for the lost porcelain original. Strikingly, the shoulders of the vase are mounted with twin gilt bronze handles, each wonderfully formed with classical foliate motifs.
