"Pair Of Vases Sèvres 1846 Château Des Tuileries"Elegant pair of Sèvres porcelain vases from the XIXth Louis-Philippe period, appropriately signed on each piece with the Sèvres blue seal dated 1846 and the royal mark of Louis Philippe (during the reign 1830-1848) and the red seal of the Château des tuileries. Baluster-shaped structure adorned with finely chiseled golden bronzes presenting on the front a Romantic style decor in polychrome medallion animated respectively by a gallant lady and a nice man painted by hand and carrying the signature of the decorator (to identify) on background royal blue accented with gold depicting a pattern of floral scrolls. Very good condition, dimensions: 30.5 cm high X 13 cm wide. In 1830, the Duke of Orleans became king of the French after the Three Glorious Revolution which led Charles X to abdicate. The king had 9 children and he moved with his family to the former royal and imperial residences such as Trianon, Tuileries, Saint-Cloud or Fontainebleau and his private residences including Neuilly, Eu, Dreux or Bizy. Louis-Philippe does away with the great service and establishes four types of patterns in Sèvres porcelain whose richness determines the recipient: the offices, the officers, the balls and the princes. Parts of these services adapted the service objects of Sèvres at the beginning of the 19th century. Due to the large staff in the royal castles, King Philippe ordered a model from the Sèvres factory. The "Service Offices" pieces are made of white porcelain and are simply distinguished by the initials of the King "LP" with a red crown for Parisian and neighboring residences and in blue for other localities such as Dreux.
