Signed Pair Gilded Mintons Pate-Sur-Pate Caged Putti Footed Moon Flask Vases

$20,000per set

About

This charming pair of gilded olive brown Mintons pâte-sur-pâte footed moon flask vases feature a romantic caged putto motif executed in white slip on a black ground. The smiling plump putti have diaphanous wings and are depicted cavorting on the grid-like bars of their cages. The hand tooled pâte-sur-pâte decoration on each piece is encircled by a gilt foliate band. The reverse of both vases bear raised gilt decoration consisting of stylized flowers and leaves with beaded accents, all of which are arranged in a symmetrical radial composition. The shoulders are adorned with white raised enamel scrolls edged in gold which are set against a contrasting robins egg blue ground. The decoration at the shoulders includes a series of densely painted fine linear gilt accents while the sides of the vases bear gilt foliate pendants which echo the design encircling the putti. The neck and feet are also trimmed in delicate gilt ornamentation. The underside of one vase bears the Mintons gilt crowned globe mark while the other retains its original paper label from London retailer Daniell of Wigmore Street. The vases are signed with artist monogram AM for Arthur Morgan who apprenticed with Louis Solon. These masterfully decorated Mintons pâte-sur-pâte porcelain vases are nicely sized for display on a mantel or shelf. A striking pair with enduring appeal.
