Antique Royal Vienna Classical Lovers Scene Hand Painted Lidded Urn/Vase. Superb Royal Vienna porcelain hand painted porcelain urn/vase with raised gold gilt. The painting is not signed but is of exceptional quality, depicting some romantic classical scene with cupid flying close by with his bow. The base has the Royal Vienna “beehive” mark. Condition is sadly not at its best, the pedestal centre looks to be totally remade and coloured to suit. The lid finial has been stuck on and looks slightly larger than it should…. But i have seen a few urns listed without lids… And just to note there is some movement/play on the lid so may not be original But this may be just the style… I do not know. Has some spots of the raised gilt decoration missing (mainly around the front painted panel) with wear to gold in some places, there are signs of wear etc all commensurate with age and use, with some minor surface scratches to the glaze. There is also a hairline on the base as shown. This was obviously a well loved vase at sometime in the past with the old restoration done. And with the painted scene been so well done i can understand why. It does display very well and is a great cabinet filler piece for new and old collectors alike. ALL fair offers considered. Overall measures 18.5″ tall and 8″ across at widest point with a 5.5 diameter base. Weighs 1.688 kilos unwrapped. Displays superbly in any period or contemporary setting.
