Inspired by the Delftware products that became world renowned in the mid-17th to mid-18th centuries, this pair of cobalt blue and white cylinder vases were hand-painted in Holland (Netherlands) in the early 1900’s. The vases depict two distinct scenes, which were interestingly painted by different artists.
One vase has a farmhouse scene signed by “E. Lombart”, with a thatched roof house set near two large trees. In front of the house is a woman watching over a cow and three chickens as they gather near a stone feeding trough. A pond lined with small trees and grass can also be seen in the foreground. The other vase is signed by “F. Dubois” beneath two large trees next to a small stream. On the other bank is a shepherd in a hat beside two cows and 12 sheep.
Perfect as decorative accessories on a console, center table, or mantel, our pair of blue and white vases could also be used to hold a cut flower bouquet. Place them in a kitchen and they can serve as beautiful holders for cooking utensils.
CONDITION: Good antique condition with fleabites and minor nicks. Light buildup to interiors.
