A Rare and Exceptionally Fine Quality Matched Pair of Austrian Exhibition Porcelain Vases and Covers.
Austrian, Circa 1870.
Each vase is painted with a continuous scene depicting a period gathering, all richly embellished with fine gilding.
Vases of this quality and size were extremely expensive and time consuming to produce. It is most likely that this pair were made to show at one of the nineteenth century exhibitions.
