Pair of Austrian Style Brass and Enamel Cornucopia Vases

Pair of Austrian Style Brass and Enamel Cornucopia Vases.



Pair of Austrian Style Brass and Enamel Cornucopia Vases

PRESENTING a GORGEOUS Pair of Austrian Style Lidded Cornucopia Urns/Vases.



The Vases are in the shape of Cornucopias with Brass mounts.

The lids are re-moveable and have Austrian Stallions as their main feature.

Each vase has a scrolling handle.

The body of each vase is enameled pottery in red and gold. The gold enameling is in the form of scrolling foliage, swags etc.

The handles feature what look like dragons but are in fact Lindwurm....Austrian Dragons with two feet .......... not four.

The Lindwurm are replicated on the highly cast base.

The horse heads are also classically Austrian.

The marks would appear to be European.

The "thing" about these vases, however, is that despite appearing to replicate 18th Century Austrian Cornucopia Vases......they are of such OUTSTANDING QUALITY in their OWN RIGHT that they do not need to be reproductions. In fact, it is almost impossible to find an original Austrian piece that is identical of even extremely similar to these Vases.
The quality of casting etc. is EXCELLENT.

Many antique dealers have sold these types of vases by this maker as GENUINE 18C Austrian pieces for large sums of money !

In my opinion, they were probably made in the early 20th Century....circa 1900.

Therefore, we are selling these Vases as EXTREMELY HIGH QUALITY DECORATIVE PIECES and for a LOT LESS than some Dealers have been selling them in the past.

These are good enough to adorn any home of style and quality !!
