My favorite part is that raspberry ground that covers the mid section of the vase, There are some great gold designs on top of that to fill in the spaces by the handle terminals as shown. The handles have a nice shape to them as well and off course there is plenty of gilding as is common for these pieces. What is unusual especially for a piece of this size is that the gold has almost no wear to it at all. Someone covered up the very top edge with some new but darker gilding and the section where the foot meets the main vase as well but that does not distract at all and it looks superb on display. It has a minor chip to one of the decorations of the handle and some idiot has drilled it in the past to make it a lamp so it has a hole to the back of the base and on the inside.
Neither affects it when on display. Two scratches near the design of the back and a small white spot in the gilding there as well. A truly stunning piece and with it being 20.5 inches tall, about 10 inches from handle to handle and 7 inches deep it is the largest I have owned and the most elegant. This size sells for about 10K on First Dibs. If you like my goodies have a look at my other auctions for a lot more top maker pieces like Limoges, Sevres and so on.
