Napoleon III Porcelain De Paris Pair of French Wedding Vases for Church

US$728.72per set


Romantic bridal vases have the classic funnel shape, flower and leaf decorations, soft-shaded colors, and gilding. They were called wedding vases (vase d’Eglise marièe) because they were given as gifts by the married couple to the church where the wedding was held to decorate the altar. They are in good condition and you can see perfect period repairs on the back (see photo). The piece was made between 1870 and 1880 in the respect of ancient traditions and the raw material ( kaolin) by the master craftsmen. Porcelain de Paris” is a term that refers collectively to the various porcelain decorating workshops and studios within and around Paris, France. It is not the name of any single company or producer and is usually applied to craft objects of excellent workmanship produced between the mid and late nineteenth century. The makers are in some cases obscure and generally unknown or have created only a few and rare pieces. Antique porcelain objects from Paris are the most desired by collectors and are present in many museums around the world. Measures cm.15 x 6 24.
