A pair of French late 19th century green onyx and champlevé enamel vases, by Barbedienne Foundry. Each with a glass insert to the top, above slender necks decorated with foliate arabesques in red, blues and white, above ovoid bodies, with conforming waisted stems and circular socles.

From 1858 the sculptor Eugène Cornu (1827-1899) worked as a designer and project manager for the firm of Gustave Viot et Cie., which was later incorporated with the the Onyx Marble Company of Algeria. The firm specialised in the production of high quality works of art incorporating champlevé enamel with gilt bronze and onyx. The stylistic forms and very decorative nature of the items proved to be very popular and it was not long before the already renowned foundry of Ferdinand Barbedienne began to produce similar work.
