The deep turquoise cylindrical shaped crystal is the perfect "canvas" for this pair of unusual 19th C. hand painted enamel vases. Each piece depicts a French soldier in period uniform, feathered hat and sword at hand, expertly painted in a thick impasto enamel contrasted against the rich background color. The vases are mounted on bronze footed bases, each signed Baccarat in the metal. Wonderful as a pair and perfect for display or filled with flowers.
Excellent condition commensurate with age, ca. 1890's
