These beautiful jugs are designed in the style of porcelain wares produced in the 18th Century by the famous Sèvres Manufactory. The jugs were crafted in France the late 19th Century.
The jugs feature slender necks on ovoid bodies stood on splayed feet, all of which is crafted from porcelain. The jugs’ necks are mounted with gilt bronze (ormolu) spouts, fitted with looping handles in the shape of leafy fruiting vines. In the Sèvres manner, the porcelain sections of the jugs are painted ‘bleu lapis’ (deep blue) and are finely parcel gilt with floral motifs. The jugs’ bodies are decorated with gilt oval medallions containing detailed paintings of cherubs in landscape settings. The jugs’ shoulders and stems are mounted with gilt bronze foliate bands, and gilt bronze husk trails encircle their feet. They stand on square gilt bronze bases with shaped sides and scalloped corners.
