Late 19th century pair of vases mounted as lamps in Chinese "famille rose" porcelain taste. They are embellished with floral motif on white background. Exquisite gilt and chiseled bronze mounts, richly decorated with rose branches. Four of them serve as arms of light. The paunch of each vase is flanked by two other ormolu roses. Probably Samson in Chinese porcelain style.

Condition Report
Both lamps are in very good overall condition, a leaf on the paunch with a small chip. Electrified and in working condition.

Literature
"Famille rose" porcelain, so called for its pinkish tint, originated during the Qing Dynasty around 1720, and developed from 1730 under the reigns of Emperor Yongzhen (1723-1736) and Emperor Qianlong (1736-1796). Renowned for its characteristic rose glaze, this innovative technique allowed artisans to achieve a wider range of tone than ever before. With the ability to reproduce subtle shades, porcelain Chinese craftsmen could create beautiful designs like the floral motif on the present antique lamps with the accuracy of an oil painter. These porcelain pieces were massively imported in Europe during the 18th and 19th centuries. By 1900, under the influence of avid collectors as Grandidier, the French amateurs looked for polychromatic porcelains and appreciated "famille rose" designs.
