Large French old Paris Sevres style porcelain urn. One side painted with a scene of two lovers strolling through a garden; the other with an idyllic countryside. The painting is signed "L. Bertreri." The reserves are framed by ornate gilt scrollwork frames against a deep cobalt blue (beau bleu) ground. With bronze mounts and handles in the form of garlands. The inside of the lid and the base are marked with a Sevres mark indicating a date of 1754.
Height: 32 in x width: 11 1/2 in x depth: 9 1/2 in.


The vase shows no visible chips, losses, or restorations. The lid shows a major crack extending from edge to the other with two hairline cracks extending from the main break near the mark. There is a small loss along one of these hairline cracks. There is crazing to the glaze throughout. Minor losses to the gilding, particularly to the beading that frames the painted scenes. The bronze mounts are patinated and show some collection of dust in the recesses. Please contact us for a detailed condition report. Please note that the lack of a condition statement does not imply perfect condition. Email with any condition questions.
