Wonderful pair of signed "Longwy" vases. Each of these colorful pieces has a large Egret on the front and a smaller one on the back. On one vase, each of the birds has a fish in it's mouth. On the other one the larger egret is looking up at the sky while the smaller one has it's beak in a pond. Other prominent motifs are palm trees, flowers, beaches and water. The Longwy mark on the bottom (see photo) indicates that they were made between 1875-1890. These are great examples of Longwy ware and would greatly enhance the decor of an Aesthetic Victorian room setting! Circa 1880. Dimensions: 10″H x 4.5″ Diameter. Condition: Good original condition. Attractive crackle in the glaze. There is a small chip (see photo) on the bottom rim of one of the vases. On close inspection this is glazed over indicating it was in the making of the piece. Price: $2450.
