This is a wonderful pair of antique Franz Dörfl Vienna porcelain pedestal vases on stands bearing the signature of the artist "J.Gunt" for Josef Gunter, and dating from the second half of the 19th Century.
Each with a superb hand painted central band of continuous decoration depicting classical figures upon a cobalt blue ground with heavily gilded decoration. The bodies can be rotated on the bases so as to view all the decoration without lifting the vases.
They bear blue beehive marks for Vienna and the blue shield for Franz Dörfl .
Beautifully made in porcelain and hand enamelled with superb gilded decoration there is no mistaking the unique quality and design, which is sure to make this pair a treasured piece for any discerning collector.
In excellent condition, with no damage or repairs and only very minor signs of wear commensurate with age and use, please see photos for confirmation.
