Ginori 19th Century Italian Medici Vase with White, Blue and Gold Porcelain

About

This truly exceptional and rare antique early 19th century Ginori two handles hand-painted ceramic vase is inspired by those that the Medici, Florence's ruling family during the Renaissance, used to put in their homes, gardens and courtyards. The white porcelain background is richly decorated in the round with royal blue and 24-karat parcel-gilt details throughout. A large, completely gilded band decorates the upper and lower part of the vase that features two white and gold fluted handles each with two gold men’s masks finals that join the body of the vase. Two multicolored coats of arms of a noble Italian family featuring an armor with red, rose, green and yellow feathers and a rampant lion are painted at the very centre among the gold painted foliage both framed by an oval gilt band. The gilding on this stunning neoclassical centrepiece is dazzling and embellishes the entire vase’s body with foliate motifs and floral patterns. The glazed royal blue band emphasizes the mirror like quality of the gold. The vase rests on a circular formed stem resting on a square plinth base. Very good antique condition with no chips, cracks, or restoration to the porcelain body. Only minor light wear to the gilding band on the base. Marked on the bottom with the original Ginori gold asterisk used from 1780-1850, this mark was introduced by Carlo Leopoldo Ginori. Measures: Height 39 cm, diameter 30 cm.
