About this object

Cast in five pieces: the pedestal, the body in three pieces and the neck. The joints where these fit together are concealed by ormolu bands chased with various decorative designs. Separate curved porcelain handles in the form of acanthus leaves (one is a replacement) fit into slots decorated with more acanthus leaves. The pedestal and neck are painted dark turquoise blue and are banded with gold. The bottom section has a molded and gilded acanthus leaf ornament. Similarly, the upper part is gilded and tooled with a scrolling acanthus leaf motif that is repeated on the verso of the central part in gold on a dark turquoise ground. Covering the front surface of both vases are large paintings signed V. Shchetinin 1837.
