    Large Medici vase
    Hard porcelain enhanced with gilding
    Dimensions: H. 30; D. 20 (cm.)
    Paris, circa 1785 - 1795

    Rare and large Medici vase, richly gilded in Salembier style, decorated with friezes of foliage, palmettes, acanthus leaves, arabesques. Catches in lion's muzzles. The associated Carrara marble base. Typical work from the end of the reign of Louis XVI and the beginning of the revolutionary period.
    The repertoire, and the fine line work of the foliage ornaments as well as their presence on a corpus of numerous pieces executed in this style point to an attribution to Russinger's workshop rather than to Dihl for example.

    Henri Salembier (1753 - 1820)
    He is a Parisian painter and ornamentalist who produced numerous decoration books from 1777 onwards. These received enormous success and are not unrelated to the development of the vocabulary used in French decorative arts at the end of the Ancien Régime and during the revolutionary period. Finally, it should be noted that Henri Salembier worked in collaboration with the Manufacture du Duc d’Angoulême: Dihl et Guérhard. 

    Condition report: small chips at the junction between the two parts, wear to the gilding, and chips under the lip (almost not visible in situ). Original thread. However, an unusual piece. 
    It is possible to have the aforementioned points restored.
