A pair of Limoges vases enamel on cooper with a emerald green background and gold highlights with a gadrooned stylized leaf and flowered branches pattern on the col and the pedestal. The body of the vases and the lower collar are decorated with a gallant scene showing two characters dressed in the eighteenth century style on a countryside backdrop. On one of the vase, a woman wearing a loose blue dress, holding her fan, watches the young man on the second vase showing her a letter. This topic is characteristic of the gallant eighteenth century repertory, showing elegant, graceful characters conversing and seduce. At the same time, it reflects the contemporary taste for countryside, an ideal place for quiet moments, in communion with nature. This pair of vases is signed VIBERT.
