Impressive Pair of Carl Thieme Porcelain Covered Urns on Bases

1901-1914, Potschappel, Germany, marked by Carl Thieme's Saxonian Porcelain Company, with hand-painted and encrusted flowers, the urns with fluted bases, the obverses with hand-painted scenes, framed with pairs of putti adorning crowned shields with swags of flowers, and with vine-form handles, the covers decorated with putti supporting cartouches with pierced crowns, on rocaille-molded bases with putti and encrusted flowers, marked with an "SB, Dresden" in underglaze blue.
h. 35-1/2", w. 14"

Provenance: Private collection, Louisiana.


In overall very good condition. There is a professional, well done, older restoration to the top of one corner on the stand and edge that has been over-painted and glazed. There are a few minute losses to some of the flower and foliage tips. One urn exhibits a couple of innate firing fissures along stemwork in the handles.
