Exceptional Capodimonte Molded and Polychrome Vase

first quarter 20th century, possibly German, decorated with carefully molded and enameled scenes from the Napoleonic wars, the panels framed with goddesses and putti, satyrs supporting the upper rim, the faceted base with brackets and scrollwork, signed with an underglaze blue crowned "N".
h. 33-1/4", dia. 17"


The trumeau sibyls and putti in high relief that divide the panel scenes have notable losses - most are lacking heads and body parts; one putto has a repaired leg. There are small scattered losses to the petal and foliage tips near the bottom of the vase. The gilding on the stem foot has some wear/rubbing. In otherwise good condition; panels retain excellent clarity of color and relief.
