A Pair of Blue Ground Sevres Vases & Covers.

The porcelain factory in Sevres, France, has been famous for producing fine, detailed and gilded porcelain of the highest quality for centuries. During the second half of the 18th century, the producer was one of the most dominant porcelain manufacturers in Europe. Today, Sevres porcelain is of high collectable value and demand continues to grow.

Each of the vases and covers features a central panel of oval form depicting a pair of courting lovers painted in a Rococo manner. The blue background holds playful and elaborate gilt decorations of foliage, vine leaves and ornamental shapes and forms suggesting a Baccic connotation and, hence, one related to food, drink and entertainment.
