    large pair of vase in white opaline glass painted and gilded attributed to jean fran?ois robert

    Pair of vases in white opaline and inverted baluster shape with wavy edges, decorated with branches of roses connected at the bottom by a blue ribbon. Multicolored birds gives a lot of life to the vases. A central medallion surrounded by arabesques painted in gold represents love scenes in the manner of the eighteenth century. Stripes with gold highlights the neck and the base. A frieze of roses on a blue background goes around the neck.

    The vases are attributed to Jean Francois Robert, a painter of landscapes and hunting scenes in the porcelain factory of Sèvres between 1806 and 1843. He was the inventor of a new process for painting colors on glass and to vitrify them by incorporating the surface of objects. His design, borrowed from classical painters of flowers in the nineteenth century are always executed with meticulous realism. From 1837 to 1855 Jean Francois Robert runs the main decoration workshop on half-crystal opal. This workshop is based in Sèvres near the royal factory. Maison Launay, Hautin & Co., depositories of Bercy, Choisy, Baccarat and Saint Louis are associated with Robert. he becomes their designer of choice. This association ended in 1855, when Jean-François Robert sixty-three, permanently retired.
