Pair Antique Darte Freres Chinoiserie Chinese Style Paris Porcelain Spill Form Vases
This pair of assembled porcelain spill vases or brush pots feature oriental enamel and gilded decorations including seated figure, exotic birds and floral motifs. Each measures 8.5" tall and 5" across. There are faint hallmarks on the underside. Condition of each is very good. There is obvious wear to the gilding, consistent with age, and no visible cracks or obvious signs of restoration. One is trimmed with horizontal ribbing at the base. They date from the second quarter of the 19th century and are marked "Da", suggesting they originate from Darte Freres.
