A simply gorgeous pair of mantel vases, or table vases, 8" tall and 4" widest diameters in fine 19th century French opaline, hand decorated with applied gold enamel and raised enamel jewel dots - my favorite. The Sevres, or Celeste blue is also a favorite of mine. These are just stunning along with the old enameled boxes or opaline "eggs", and elevate any room to which you add them. Just in from France. No flaws to note, really.
Very good to excellent condition with no chips nor hairlines, either one. They are a matching pair, original. Date to late 1800s, French and retain more of the old original raised enamel work than just about any pair I've ever seen. The Celeste or "Sevres" blue color is just brilliant. Acanthus and bow - the whole works. They seem larger than 8" to me. Nice big size on them. Would be superb with a bouquet in each on your table or mantel, or mine. Full measurements noted on our photos.
