ANTIQUE PAIR FRENCH LARGE URNS OR LAMPS. COBALT ROYAL BLUE, GILT ON PORCELAIN WITH BRASS BASES AND TRIM. COURTING GARDEN SCENE (ONE SIDE). HEIGHT: 14 3/4 BASE TO TOP OF FINIAL. WIDTH: 5″ BASE, 6 1/4″ WING TO WING. This pair of beautiful cobalt blue antique urns are also lamps. (with parts that have never been assembled). And are part of an estate. (single owner who displayed them on mantel). I chose not to unscrew the lamp bottoms to check for Sevres stamp due to age and tightness of screws, but appear identical. In style, coloring, painting, and gilt to Sevres similar pieces. Cobalt blue, hand painted courting scene on front, gilt floral on back and around paintings. Paint and gilt on porcelain are intact. There is shelf wear/some dust and a little dirt from age. Underside of brass shows mild signs of corrosion. No corrosion on upper sides/brass trim. But one has lower stem of the upper left decorative wing/handle that broken off. (see photos for all details described). The top of each has lamp parts screwed in place (including finials, easy to remove). The bottom and top show that there has been a hole drilled in each for lamp wiring. Can be displayed as urns or wired for lamps. Because I cannot l. Ocate a makers mark on these urns/lamps and they may be Sevres, one is perfect, and the other has a broken “wing” piece, I have tried to price fairly without confirming Sevres mark. Great bargain if that’s what these are. Many other estate items listed on my site now and coming shortly, feel free to take a look. And thanks for reading all of this!
