These vases stand an impressive 12 1/2" tall and sit on bases sponged in gold that measures approx. 4" in diameter. This lovely piece of German porcelain features large brilliantly colored flowers, all outlined in gold. The background color is a soft cream and there is a lot of sponged gold around the flowers and also around the base and top. There is also raised beaded detailing around the lip and handles of the vases. Very good original condition, with some wear to the gilded handles (one vase has more loss than the other). These vases are in excellent condition. Except for gentle wear to the gold on the top of the handles, these vases have no issues as to paint loss, cracks, chips, flakes, hairlines, spiders or cracks. They are handpainted and each vase is different from the other. The coloring is the same but the flowers are actually different.
