Seller's Notes: A beautiful pair of Samson of Paris porcelain vases with covers. Perfect condition!!! No chips or cracks. Of baluster form, painted in Chinese Export style with an Armorial on a foliate ground within arrowhead borders, painted mark. Late 19th or early 20th century. 15" height During the latter part of the 19th century a number of potteries in Paris began to produce good quality copies of collectable antique ceramics and the Samson factory is the most famous. This vase is in the style of pieces made in China in the 18th century with European armorials painted on them, but it carries a pseudo Chinese mark which is recognized as one of the marks of the Samson factory. The original Chinese pieces are very valuable, however there is a demand for these French copies. EdmÃ© Samson (1810-1891), founder of the ceramics firm Samson, EdmÃ© et Cie (commonly known as Samson Ceramics), was a famous copyist (and even perhaps a forger in some cases) of porcelain and pottery. Samson began his career by making service and set piece replacements in the late 1830s. In 1845 he opened the ceramics firm Samson, with the intention of supplying reproductions of ceramics on display in museums and private collections. Designs from the factories of Meissen, SÃ¨vres, Chelsea, and Derby were among the reproductions Samson, alongside numerous reproductions of Iznik pottery, Chinese ceramics and Japanese porcelain.
