Flowers in an urn
Elegant 18th Century engraving of a classical
vase and bouquet after Pierre Ranson.
Paris, Esnauts et Rapilly, circa 1780
Copper engraving on chainlinked paper.
We believe this piece is from the work: "Oeuvres
contenant un recueil de trophées, attributs,
cartouches, vases, fleurs...' published in Paris
The designs for this work were made by the French artist Pierre Ranson ((French, 1736-1786), a designer at the Aubusson tapestry factory who created floral and neo-classical pattern books for ornament.
Dimensions: 22 X 28.5 cm
Some light spotting and toning (looks more
pronounced in the scans than to the naked eye)
