C1910 Pair 46 cm Dresden Vases finely Painted after Watteau etc

$2,250.00 the magnificent Pair


This magnificent pair of early 20th century Dresden bottle vases stands. 46 cm tall, with a diameter of 26 cm. In a decoration formula derived form Meissen, the vases are divided into four compartments, two of which have the white porcelain as a ground, and two of which have a gilded ground.  They were made by Heufel & Co, Dresden, who were active 1900 to 1940. They were a decorating firm so the porcelain may have been bought "in the white" from another manufactory. The decoration is of the highest quality, so it is not surprising they exported to America. The eight scenes are painted with great finesse, mostly inspired by 18th century painters such as Watteau. There is a little wear to the gilding on only one of the vases at the base of the neck. Perhaps the key to the library door was concealed under this vase? (Too much Agatha Christie?)
