Pair Paris Porcelain Hand Painted Mantle Urns


This pair of French Paris Porcelain mantle urns is decorated with hand painted flowers.
Crafting these urns circa 1840, the artist used enamels and gilt on white porcelain.
We see pink roses and other flowers painted in purple, orange and blue, and small green leaves.
Green cartouches embellished with luxurious gilt add to the beauty of the urns.
The square bases and wide, everted top edge are also beautifully gilded.
The gilded handles have mask head terminals.
This pair is a small gem! They possess a balanced and proportionate form.

Condition: Excellent with the very slightest rubbing to the gilt on the high points of the base.
