    A Pair of Gilt Bronze Mounted 'Famille Rose' Porcelain Covered Urns

    Unknown maker, China and France
    Late Qing Dynasty, Probably Guangxu Period (1875-1908)
    Porcelain, gilt bronze
    23 inches high

    Each of the Rose Medallion pattern, rectilinear urns with figural knob over domed cover with conforming gilt-bronze collar atop the urn, fitted with gilt-bronze double lion-headed drop-ring handles at the flared shoulder, tapering to a rectangular foot raised on conforming gilt-bronze leaf-banded plinth foot; the underside with recessed wooden base that secures the permanently affixed metal mounts.

    The porcelain with standard Rose Medallion decoration detailed in bright polychromes heightened with gold.

    The French-made bronze mounts probably contemporaneous with the porcelain.

    Harry Ozonoff Antiques, Dallas (1973)
