Chinese Vase on French Gilt Bronze Mount

$35,661.74

About

The foot of the vase, with a purplish blue lustre glaze, is set into a base with four concave sides from which four dolphins leap surrounded by reeds. The body is clasped by two swan protome handles that broaden to form large leaves wrapping around the whole body, surmounted by crowns; other leaf motifs depart vertically from the handles. The neck consists of a perforated bronze ring as does the lid in the form of a lattice topped by a knob in the shape of a tuft. Signed at the base 'Le Maire Demouy à Paris'.
