|This beautiful pair of French porcelain vases was made between 1850-1900 in Louis XVI, late 18thC style. They are marked under the bases with a faux 18thC black Sevres mark with interlaced "L's" encircling the letters, "PP". The bodies and feet are cast in one piece. The ground color of the bodies is rose pompadour, named for Madame Pompadour. Each hand painted reserve features a vignette of a courting couple in a garden with a cherub. The surrounding ornamentation has a caryatid's head, a jeweled border and laurel garlands, all in two shades of coin gilding. The versos are decorated with masterfully painted fruit and flower groups. The bases are gilt bronze. The pair may have originally had lids, but there is no indication in the form of visible wear that this pair had them. The pair is in very good condition with light wear to the gilding consistent with their age. The vases measure 17 1/2 inches or 40.5 cm in height.|
