A Magnificent Pair of Russian Imperial Ruby Glass Vases with Gilded Bronze Mounts
While Napoleon's armies never conquered Russian, French taste did, and in a big way. This pair made at the Imperial Glass Workshop, under the Sponsorship of the Imperial Family would have been at home in a Paris drawing room as easily as in St. Petersburg. The Intense Ruby Red color of the Crystal is created by adding large quantities of gold to the molten glass before the object is created. The resulting color is dense yet full of light just like its namesake the precious jewel. The Dore bronze mounts use motifs taken from antiquity. Likewise, the shape of the handles is inspired by Greco-Roman amphora. The Facets of the Diamond Chevron patterned decorations capture and manipulate the light and the fluting repeated on the base adds to the overall sense of light made light made solid.
