Artifact Description

The few one-of-a-kind objects found on the wreck of the SS Republic are suggestive of personal possessions stowed with the passengers' belongings or perhaps shipped in reduced quantities as limited consignments. Among these exclusive pieces are two matching white porcelain vases with an elaborate floral relief decoration as the central motif. The decoration appears to have been attached separately after the vases were molded. Very likely of French manufacture, the vases are referred to as"wedding vases" or "mantel vases" in light of a French custom whereby matched pairs were presented to young brides and grooms for display on their mantels.
