This pair of porcelain vases was produced in Austria in the 1890s. They have a beehive marking painted over the glaze. They are 8 5/8 inches tall. The diameter at the widest point is 4 inches. The form of the vases has a classic, clean silhouette. But the tour de force is the jeweled decoration. Raised enamel beads or jewels imitating sapphires, opals, amethysts, and rainbow quartz accent and drape around each vase. There are garlands of tiny pink roses and tiny gilded rosettes. A gold medallion with gilded ribbons contains pink roses encircled in pearl-like beads. The neck of the vase has an intricate raised gold pattern that covers the entire surface. It is difficult to name all the details, there are so many. And yet, they are totally elegant on a pristine, white ground. What a joy to find a matching pair. Condition: Excellent
