Very Large, (20" tall by 10" wide) pair of brilliantly colorful old 19th century Paris porcelain vases that are quite heavy and stable. The bottoms are extra thick to give ballast to large arrangements. As you can see the colors are still rich and vibrant and gilding has very little rub.Condition-wise they are nearly perfect with the exception of a stable crack on the back of one of the large white side petals. There are also a few small chips in some of the colored flowers too insignificant to notice unless you are really scrutinizing them. They ring true when thumped with a fingernail.
