SOLD French Porcelain Vases, Style of Eduoard Honore Paris Porcelain, the baluster form bodies under waisted flared necks, with lion's mask-head handles to either side under everted u-shaped handles, the ankles over flaring foot attached to square plinth bases.
The neck, handles and bases with fine gilding, the bodies with foliate scrolling gilt designs to the sides, around shield-shaped reserves painted with fine garlanded swags painted in bright polychrome enamels.
Marked to the undersides "Ed HONORE /A PARIS" for Edouard Honore, Paris.
11 3/4" H.
Late 20th C.
Both with worn gilding at foot, and minor gilding wear. One or two scratches to surfaces.
Parallels: The shape of vase is more often identified with the factory of Jacob Petit, nee Jacob Mardochée (1797 - 1868 ). Clearly, Petit/Marochee took the mold and handle forms from Honore. Regine de Plinval de Guillebon La Porcelaine A Paris describes the Honore marks, p. 432 in the French ed. For many years Honore bought hard paste porcelain blanks from Champroux, and decorated them at the Paris atelier.
