Recent prominent Northern Virginia estate find. We believe these pieces were created in the first half of the 1900’s c. 1920’s by Porcelaine de Paris. The signature on each are artist marks very reminiscent of variations used by the artists from this company on Asian style pieces; the marks are almost like a faux Asian mark. Definitely an Asian influenced ginger jar or urn form; however, the hand painted decoration is more so one of an European family or military crest. The Latin word “Audeo” (to dare, to risk) is written below the crest. Condition, standing 7 5/8 to the top of the finials. No chips, cracks, crazing or stains. The colors are vibrant, the gold embellishments are strong and the glaze has a high sheen. Some very moderate gold lost, primarily on the finial of each lid. Regardless, spectacularly decorated and display amazingly well. It looks as if these pieces were very cherished and well kept. Please review all photos for overall condition, design, and dimensions. Photos do contain measurements and price listed is for both jars. The item “Porcelaine de Paris Hand Painted Asian Style Ginger Jars Urns Artist Mark France” is in sale since Wednesday, July 8, 2020.
