C1845 Spectacular Vieux Paris Porcelain Vase

$550.00 the magnificent specimen


Affectionately called "Lunatic Vases " by my circle, extravagant Parisian vases such as this one celebrate the opulence of the returned Bourbon Court under Louis Philippe. Similar vases can be found in many of the Creole Louisiana Plantation mansions, and, consequently in the extensive Vieux Paris collection in New Orleans' art gallery. The complex Rococo revival shape is decorated lavishly with gilding , applied flowers and painted floral vignettes. This vas is a spectacular example, and is in great condition: only half a flower petal seems to be missing. It stands 42 cm tall.
