Presented for sale is a magnificent pair of French Barbotine Bas-relief vases heavily encrusted with large flowers. They are hand modeled and enameled in softly blended colors, circa 1870 - 1890. We have collected French Barbotine for years because we love the extraordinary artistry typical in every piece we buy, no two pieces ever seem to be the same. Each vase is raised on tree-trunk legs.
The vases are in very good age related condition, we rarely find these pieces without some imperfections. There has been expert restoration to a few of the petals and leaves and the bases were drilled at one time for lamps. We prefer them to be used, however, as they were intended perched to dazzle in any room as vases.
Size: Approx. 14” Height, 10” Width, x 10” Depth.
