These French (Paris) porcelain vases are lavishly painted with exotic birds against lush florals on a background of pale celadon green. The form mimics Chinese ceramics; a high-shouldered body with angular gilt handles. Painted as a "true pair", the birds on each vase reflect the ones on the other.

These had been drilled (and presumably used) for lamp bases at some point. This would be a perfect use for them again, or simply to enjoy on the mantel.

Unmarked. Probably French, ca. 1850.

Size: Approximately 11.25" tall, 3" top opening diameter, 4.25" bottom diameter.

Condition: Some gilt wear to handles. No chips, cracks or repairs.

Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
