Lot No. 0513

Manufacturer: Webb


Description: Exquisite pair of Thomas Webb & Sons cameo vases fastidiously carved with an Oriental design from rim to base. The two tone ivory bodies are blanketed with minute leafing vines and flowers surrounding framework that reiterate the vine pattern which encloses exotic and reptilian-like birds perched on flowering branches. Decorative bands dissect the pattern at the rims and shoulders while acanthus leaves were carved at the bases. Height 8 1/2 inches. The impression of “Thomas Webb & Sons” within a crescent shaped banner is beneath both vases. This precise and masterful workmanship was surely the pièce de résistance of the Woodall Team.

Size: 8 1/2

Estimate: $12,000.00 - $15,000.00
