19th Century Longwy Vase Mounted in Lamp


This vase, with its Japanese decoration and shapes, was made in northeastern France, in Longwy, in the 1870s. The lower part of the vase is diamond grid with crosses inside. On the paunch, an Asian-inspired decoration treated in relief depicts two Asian characters face to face around a round table. It would be a man and a woman in view of their respective hairstyles. The man, sitting on a stool, wears a long garment and is wearing a hat of sinister inspiration. The woman, for her part, wears a long dress and receives a stylized hairstyle. She holds a fan in her left hand and a book in her right hand. On another part of the vase, a Japanese cherry tree unfolds with its flowers at the end of its branches. The upper part of the vase houses a geometric frieze similar to the ancient meanders. At this level there is a small handle on each side that is treated like a rope. This vase made of an Asian-inspired lamp shows the growing appeal of 19th century artists to the Far East. Total height with lampshade: 72 cm Width at the bronze base: 16 cm French electricity system.
