  • Description
    Pair of painted and parcel gilt opaline glass vases by Baccarat
    French, c. 1850
    Height 51cm, diameter 21cm
    Crafted by the renowned firm of Baccarat in France around 1850, this pair of vases features an array of Rococo-style ornamentation.
    The body of each vase is beautifully painted with vibrant floral compositions, with delicate foliage intertwined between the flowers. In the front are larger flower bouquets, while to the reverse and sides are more delicate ones. The bright white background created by the opaline glass makes the polychrome paintings stand out.
    To complement the painted flowers, a variety of gilt patterns adorns the vases. Elegant gilt borders decorate the top and bottom of the vases in addition to subtle turquoise detailing. A gilt detailing positioned in the centre of the vases also includes patterns in this bright blue shade. Rococo-style patterns in the form of C and S scrolls are placed around the circumference of both vases.
    Baccarat was founded in 1764 and has been granted royal patronage from rulers such as King Louis XV and has won several prizes at the renowned universal exhibitions most popular in the 19th century.
    Of a charming design and a nice size, these vases would present beautifully with a rich floral composition.
    Artist/ Maker: Baccarat
