Exquisite miniature urn made with the most exceptional skill by Royal Vienna, Austria, in the mid to late 1800's. This was made especially for the firm Mermod & Jaccard, who had luxury jewelry stores in St. Louis, Paris, Vienna, and London. This 19th century objet d' art  is everything a piece of hand painted, high quality porcelain should be.

The hand painted classical portraits on both sides are stunning, one side features Venus and Amor {cupid} the other Jupiter and Calista. The fine painting is signed by noted artist C. Heer, the urn has that luscious cobalt blue color with gilt, enameled gold beading and white enameled detailing. This beauty is finished with very fine raised gilt work and enamel jewels. A true decorative treasure and delight for your collection. Marked with the beehive mark in blue, it is what they call a "bolted" urn, meaning a metal bolt joins the two pieces together.

  • Measures 5-5/8"h.
