Expertly Crafted Vase raised on 4 Gilt Paw feet & Scrolled Acanthus moulding with gilded accents. Band of Delicate Hand Modelled Flower heads in Yellow, Violet, Lilac & Blue. Lovely details to the centre of the flowers and surrounded by little buds. The Pierced Lid with complimenting flowers buds mounted with a Gilt Flame Finial with Foliated surround.
7.2cm Dia to rim
7.5cm dia to the base.
Damage to all but one leaf surrounding the finial, with 2 leaves fully broken and tips broken on the other 2. Fine hairline from the rim of the lid to the pierced section. 5 very fine hairline to the rim of the base appx 5mm inside with 2 travelling further on the outside. fine hairline hidden in the gilt footed base. I feel the top & base may of been re-attached, I did not notice this at 1st as its not visible. Fine crazing & some very minor gilding wear. Sounds like its in poor condition but I like to be very honest and mention every fault however minor.
