This pair of cloisonne vases is decorated with a profusion of varied flower heads in a bright and colourful pallet. The vases are tied around the waist with two ribbons, the loose four ends of which fall down and over the lower gourd, and up in a bow above the waist. The gilt bronze base is centred by a four-character Qianlong mark within a square, this was previously drilled and the hole now restored.
