Pair of Large French Samson Porcelain and Gilt Bronze Chinoiserie Vases

About the Item

Pair of large French Samson porcelain and gilt bronze Chinoiserie vases French, Late 19th Century Height 57cm, diameter 24cm This superb pair of vases was crafted in the late 19th century by the renowned French firm of Samson et Cie. They have produced exceptional pieces which imitated earlier styles, but were not made to deceive but rather to satisfy the growing demand for items of this type. The blue ground porcelain bodies of both vases are decorated with several panels of white porcelain. These have hand-painted famille verte floral decorations, their design clearly inspired by Chinese art. Each vase is covered by a blue ground porcelain cover, surmounted by a gilt bronze finial cast to depict fruits and flowers. The vases stand on an expertly crafted gilt bronze base supported on four lion paw feet. The underside of the vases is painted with a blue mark alongside the red Samson mark. The outstanding craftsmanship showcased on these vases paired with the fusion of Eastern and Western design styles would enhance one’s collection of decorative objects. Literature: A very similar vase of this model appears in F. Slitine, Samson, génie de l'imitation, Paris, 2002, page 43.

    Located in London, GB
    A pair of large Louis XV style gilt-bronze and Samson porcelain candelabra French, Late 19th century Measures: Height 68cm, width 54cm, depth 36cm Crafted with great artistry and skill by the Samson porcelain manufactory in late nineteenth century France, these exceptional candelabra feature superb full-length porcelain subjects set within elaborate gilt-bronze lighting branches. Made in the Louis XV style, each pair, symmetrical to each other in design, consists of five-lighting branches, a mount for the porcelain, and elegantly sculpted bases. The porcelain figures are that of a man and woman playing musical instruments, wistfully gazing towards each other while they stroll and play; he plays a variation on the bagpipes, probably the French cabrette, while she plays a large guitar-like stringed instrument. They stand 68cm in height and bear the Samson mark to the underside. Beautiful pieces, the porcelain figures of which can stand separately, they are wonderful examples of French antique...
