About this artwork

A garniture, or set, of vases usually consisted of three or five vases, which could vary by size or shape, shown as a group on mantles or furniture. Each of these vases is comprised of two parts: vase and stand. Water was poured into the lower portion through the openings around the stand and was drawn up through holes into the fan-shaped vase.
