Date: Probably late 19th century
The ultimate statement pieces! Two spectacular looking ewers in a Neo-Renaissance style typical for the late 19th century/Victorian époque. They have dark blue earthenware bodies that sit on a mould-cast spelter foot. The spout, neck and scrolling handle are made from one piece of spelter. The spelter has been gilded (now patinated) and displays ornate renaissance and rococo style motifs. These are purely decorative and cannot be filled with or hold anything.
Dimensions: 50 cm high, 15.5 cm diameter foot, 1.755 kg each
Good. One of them has a minor chip to the glaze (see photo). One of them wobbles a bit. The gilding on the spelter has thinned/tarnished and has a nice aged look.
