Splendid continuous hand-painted scenes adorn this graceful and rare Viennese enamel vase and matching pedestal. Depicting diverse images from classical mythology, these scenes are executed with exceptional detail and artistry. The classical theme extends to the gilt silver mounts.

The forte of the Viennese enamelers was their success in following the trend set by the interior decorators of mansions and great public buildings with regard to color schemes and pictorial themes from classical mythology. Considering the highly skilled craftsmanship of the Viennese artisans, this ornamental work often surpassed the original Renaissance and rococo designs it emulated, making Vienna one of the most important European centers for decorative arts.
