This pair of enamelled porcelain covered pots decorated with golden borders on a cobalt blue was made by the Manufacture de Sèvres which it bears the stamp in 1885. These two vases take the form of baluster in reference to the rounded columns. This form was invented in 1881 by the French sculptor Albert Carrier-Belleuse who was artistic director at the Manufacture nationale de Sèvres in 1876 where he renewed with a certain modernity the collections. The very fine feet thus support a broad belly which is refined in its upper part. On the beautiful very bright cobalt blue with subtle shades darker, the golden edges are brought out, which give sophistication and ornament to this pair of covered pots.
