Attributed to LONGWY, 19th century
Beautiful pair of fine earthenware scroll vases with cloisonné enamels decorated on a blue scale background with symmetrical bouquets of flowers in cartouches. Japanese inspired decoration, precursor of the art deco. Gilt metal frame, two handles in the form of parrots, four feet forming elephant heads, in the taste of Edouard Lièvre's drawings for L'Escalier de cristal.

H : 27.8 cm

This pair of scroll vases testifies to the eclectic fascination for the Orient at the end of the 19th century. Probably from the Longwy factory, they are characteristic of the work of polychrome enamels in relief, here featuring polychrome scales, in imitation of the decorations made on the ceramics of Iznik in the 16th century. The gilded bronze trim echoes certain models given by Edouard Lièvre or Gabriel Viardot for the prestigious Parisian store "L'Escalier de cristal", specialized in the distribution of Sino-Japanese furniture and in the distribution of crystal or ceramic objects with orientalizing frames.
