Two Very Elaborate Vincennes Flowers, circa 1745-55
These are a pair of very elaborate flowers made at the Vincennes factory amongst thousands produced in the late 1740s and in the 1750s. Normally such flowers are smaller and considerably less elaborate than these.
From the collection of Mrs. Firestone, Newport, Rhode Island.
