Most unusual pair of silver menu holder vases with engine-turned engraved bodies overlaid with white vitreous enamel and delicately hand painted images of baskets of blue flowers surmounted with blue ribbons.

Vitreous enamel is a decorative, glass-like coating fused on to a metallic base, historically applied on gold, silver and copper. The earliest known enamelled objects were made in 13th century BC during the Mycenæan period.
