French Louis XVI Bronze Ormolu & Cobalt Glass Vases
A Fine pair of Louis XVI blown and hand cut cobalt glass vases. French, circa: 1775-1785. Measuring: 8.25" high .

Each glass body is hand blown cobalt glass. Each has hand cut facets around the entire body. Mounted in its original sharp crisp bronze mounts boasting swags and bows.

Each has some minor restoration to glass at top where it meets the bronze mounts. Does not affect the integrity of them or their beauty. The glass most probably produced from the Baccarat factory.

Lost wax method used to create the fine detail and quality cast bronze work with hand chasing. The ormolu is Mercury gilded with both Matt finish and highly burnished areas of highlight. Gilding is original in tact.
