If you were looking for a pair of sleek and 'vintage chic' defining vases, then congratulations, here is a pair. That's why you're reading this right? You were likely drawn to them the same way I was.
The abstract Orchid pattern is very well balanced between broad defined shapes and depth in the dotted detail to take the pattern away from being totally flat. There is also enough simplicity in the colour palette of apricot orange, plum purple and candy apple red against the white to avoid the pieces becoming too overpowering and gaudy.
Excellent, there is only one mark on the tall urn vase, very light wear to the gold trim - no chips, scratches or cracks otherwise, please see photos as part of the condition report.

A BIT OF HISTORY
The company was founded in 1872 as small decoration company under the name of 'Jaeger, Thomas & Co.' (1872 until 1898). During the first few years everything was fine but after various disputes with Jaeger regarding the product range and funding of special projects, Fritz Thomas decided to quit the company in 1898 to form 'Thomas & Ens'.
Following the departure of Thomas the factory itself was slightly modernized and slowly expanded, by 1913 already employing around 400 workers and over the years the factory flourished. By 1930, Jaeger employed 500 workers, however, during the post-war period, the company had to fight to recapture its market share. In 1979, the company Sebring from Italy purchased Jaeger with all its assets.
