Pair Large Sevres Urns
Pair large Sevres porcelain urns with gilded handles and on marble bases. With finely painted scenes of cupids surrounded by garlands and the body in duck egg blue with gilt decoration.The base with underglazed blue crossed L’s for 1760, and the unglazed bases with impressed signature of Ponty and 1827.
The crossed L’s are either added later or the bases are not original to the vases. As the main bodies have the impressed mark with a date of 1827 and a signature of the maker this dates the vases, and as the colour is very unusual it is more likely that the foot and base belong together. Therefore the most likely is that the crossed L underglaze marks are a later addition. The panels are beautifully painted but unsigned.
