A pair of 19th century French, 'Ryhton' form cornucopia opaline vases mounted into ormolu bronze boars

A pair of 19th century French, 'Ryhton' form cornucopia opaline glass vases, mounted into ormolu bronze boar’s heads, upon rectangular black marble bases. Each opaline vase profusely decorated with gilt and polychrome oriental birds, foliage and flowers. Clearly inspired by the architect Alexandre-Théodore Brongniart (French, 1739 –1813) ‘cornet’ Sevres vases with boars now on display in the Louvre. Brongniart derived the shapes from ancient Rhyton drinking vessels. The ‘Rhyton’ form originates from the ancient Greeks, a conical horn shape, typically formed into the shape of an animal's head. French circa 1870.
