Footnotes

  • Philippe-Joseph Brocard (1831-1896) specialised in the production of imitations of Medieval and Islamic glass. He gained critical acclaim at the Paris Universelle Exposition of 1867, where a number of vessels by him decorated in this style were shown. It is likely, therefore, that this fine pair of vases was included in the display at Paris in 1867. Brocard's work was subsequently shown at the 1873 Vienna World's Fair and 1878 Paris Exposition.
