Pair Japonaiserie Chinoiserie French Verre Eglomise Glass Jars
This pair of antique glass jars with lids feature lovely reverse painted decorations, including the figures of a mother, father and child, and floral and organic motifs. Each measures 15.5" tall and 9" across and each weighs an estimated 2-3 lbs. There are obvious paint losses to the decorations, consistent with age, and no visible signs of damage or restoration to the glass. We cannot rule out the possibility of hairlines or small chips. Underside of one jar has an original paper label from Leune, a "Cristaux et Porcelaine" (Crystal and Porcelain) shop at 20 rue de la Harpe which is located in the Latin Quarter in Paris.
