A stunning and large pair of 19th century porcelain urns with lids, made by Samson Edmé et Cie porcelain, of Paris. Samson opened in 1845 and soon became well-known for making reproductions of ceramic pieces on display in museums and private collections. Although the company was imitating existing styles, Samson porcelain products were (and continue to be) valued for their high quality, skillful artistry and brightly-colored glazes. These urns are decorated with Samson's idiosyncratic interpretation of Famille Rose style Chinese motifs. Each urn has large images, surrounded by variety of finely detailed floral, figurative and abstract designs.
