Quantity available: 1

This wonderful and very large ceramic vase measuring 26 x 12 x 9 in (66 x 30 x 23 cm) features brilliant enameled decorations depicting a cavalier and on reverse a gold lion rampant, with foliate Louis XV style bronze mounts at rim and base, is signed F LAFON, likely a reference to an original work by the noted French portraitist and genre painter, Francois Lafon (1846-?).  Condition is very good. There is rubbing and oxidation to the bronze surfaces, consistent with age, scratches and nicks and some visible hairlines.
