C1840 Rococo Revival Vieux Paris (Old Paris) Porcelain Hand painted Vase
Painted skilfully with flowers against a white reserve contrasted against a red and blue ground, this fan shaped, Louis Philippe period vase spreads cut flowers to a showy display, that is yet narrow enough for a mantel shelf. The reverse is also painted with flowers. It stands 20 cm tall, is 20 cm wide and only 13 cm deep. The hard paste porcelain is brilliantly white, and the gilding, always fugitive on Old Paris, is rather worn.
