Vases » Chiselled vases

Very rich the carving of this prestigious vase. The vase's body, which has a round shape, is deeply chiselled with a grapes motif. The top and the bottom are carved in a plaiting of Acanthus leaves and the lid is adorned with leaves and other decorative elements. The choice of the block to turn is very careful: transparent Agata alabaster with warm amber tones.
Unique piece.
Price: €. 1350,00

Very pretty oval amphora with a finely chiselled satyr shaped handle. Particularly refined the turning obtained with the
technique of carving in two separate parts which allows to make such a small mouth in a light vase.
The high quality of the details depends also on the hardness and homogeneity of this precious kind of alabaster.
Unique piece.

This neoclassic style hand chiselled vase was created at the beginning of the nineteenth century. It is part of a rich collection of recipients designed to give something to drink, known as Mesciroba. The chromatic contrast between the warm amber tints of alabaster Agata and the cold whiteness of alabaster Scaglione give prominence to the bas-relief of two mythological figures carved on the vase body. The alabaster Agata handle is a very fine stylization of a cobra.
It is an original pair from the sixties. Price for one piece.
