c1880 Pair of Sevres Revival Vases Louis XIV and XV Portraits


A beautiful pair of porcelain vases decorated in an accurate c1782 Sèvres style, complete with portraits of the French Kings Louis XIV and Louis XV.

The vases are each of urn shaped form on a circular socle base. They are painted to the front with the portraits of the 2 kings and pastoral scenes within a cartouche. On the reverse are beautiful sprays of flowers. The cartouches are on a ‘bleu celeste’ background, with fine burnished gilding.

The base is made of two pieces bolted together. On the base are the marks of the Sevres porcelain factory, with double Es, corresponding to the date 1783. However, the manufacture date is likely 100 years later. Condition is excellent.
