Vase Médicis: Very Classic Bon Goût
Bonjour de L’Ecole du Bon Goût.
Since Greek and Roman times garden vases in various materials have been an important contribution to landscape compositions.
Today we usually call them Vase Médicis after the powerful Médicis family of Renaissance times in Italy.
Louis XIV commissioned dozens upon dozens of vases in marble, guided lead and bronze especially for Versailles and Marly.
He gave these commissions to the greatest sculptors of the day, which shows how important these vases were to him.
Garden vases also can be very tasty punctuations for interior settings, bringing some of the “garden’s joys” indoors.
At Au Vieux Paris Antiques, there is a diverse selection of vases to choose from, so plan a visit and see these tasty vases as well as the rest of the current stock of antiques!
Consider bringing some classical Bon Goût into your life by using Vase Médicis!
