Offered is this pair of hand-painted, elephant-handled, ormolu-mounted vases (the vases have been drilled at their bottoms, and as such, could be used for either displaying dry flowers or as lamp bases), made around 1890. Each one is 15 3/4 inches (40 cm) tall and 9 3/4 inches (25 cm) wide. They are in excellent condition, without chips, cracks or repairs (there is age-appropriate tarnishing of the metal and fading of the paint). Unsigned - they could be signed on their bottoms, but hidden due to the metal mounts. The artwork on the vases and the usage of honey-comb patterned glass blanks is highly suggestive of them being made by Monot & Stumf (which later became Mont Joye) - please refer to page 14 of Janine Bloch-Dermant's book, 'The Art of French Glass 1860-1914' for a Monot & Stumf's usage of similar honey-comb patterned glass blank.
