These grand and impressive vases will make a bold interior statement, thanks to the beautiful, bright malachite veneer which gives them their rich green colouring. Each vase stands at roughly half a metre in height, and features impressively-cast gilt bronze mounts.

The two vases are set on square bases with a waisted socle above. Their bodies are ovoid in shape and each one is mounted around the centre with a gilt bronze band, decorated in relief with shells, scrolls and laurel swags. Perhaps the most impressive and artistic elements of the vases, however, are the twin eagle-form handles which are mounted at the sides of each vase. The vases are completed with lids, each further embellished with a gilt bronze finial in the form of a flame.

The vases date from the 19th Century, with the malachite veneer being a later addition.
