Decorated in gold and platinum leaf, these vases were produced at the height of a craze for chinoiserie at the Sèvres factory, their black ground colour inspired by Asian lacquer. At Carlton House they were displayed in the Rose Satin Drawing Room, alongside pieces of Chinese porcelain with gilt-bronze mounts.

Probably purchased in 1812
