Each vase has large gilded satyr’s heads to the sides, anthemion decoration to the tops; scroll work around the sides flanking cameos on each side with painted classical heads; one pair painted on a etruscan red background, the other pair on a dark green background. The urns sit on faux marble porcelain rectangular bases. No damage, no rubbing. French circa 1820.
