French Gilded Paris Porcelain Basket with Pair of Gilded Paris Porcelain Vases
We are pleased to offer this elegant three-part group of Paris Porcelain in the Empire style crafted circa 1840.
The centerpiece is an oval-shaped pierced basket, lavishly gilded with delicate latticework. The golden Empire style lends an air of grandeur to the design, while the intricate latticework adds a sense of delicacy and allows light to play through. The white line across the top of the base further enhances the richness of the gold, creating a touch of intensity. The long rectangular base harmonizes beautifully with the oval shape, creating a visually balanced composition. With dimensions of 13.75″ long x 7.5″ wide x 10.75″ tall and a depth of 4.75″, this basket is perfect as a centerpiece for a formal dining room table, be it oval-shaped or rectangular. It would also make an exquisite addition to a dining room sideboard.
Flanking the centerpiece is a pair of golden Paris Porcelain mantle vases in the Empire style and crafted circa 1840. The gilding on these vases is exquisite. Delicate bands of flowers and matte handles further emphasize the luxury of the gold. These vases stand 12.5″ tall and measure 6″ across the handles, with a depth of 4″. Their dimensions and captivating design make them ideal as companions to the centerpiece or for adorning a mantelpiece.
Both pieces are in very good to excellent condition, with some small touches of gilt invisibly restored on the basket, while the vases are pristine.
