Pair of English Portrait Vases of "The Blue Boy" and "Lady Georgiana Cavendish"

ca. 1900, both after Thomas Gainsborough (English, 1727-1788), the ovoid-form vases, possibly made by Royal Crown Derby, decorated with laurel leaves on a cobalt ground, the pierced handles decorated with serpents holding spherules in their mouths.
h. 17-3/4", dia. 5-1/2"


The rim and both handles on one vase have been professionally repaired, over-painted and gilded (repair is not readily detectable). The bottom foot of the same vase exhibits adhesive repairs. There are some scattered chips and losses to the feet of both vases.
