Ferdinand Barbedienne - Vaso - Bronzo (dorato)

A superb gilt bronze neoclassical vase, measuring 15.7cm in height and weighing 838g, decorated in low relief with depiction of Adonis picking grapes to one side, returning from the hunt to the other side. Signed F. Levillain and engraved with foundry mark of Ferdinand Barbedienne. Ferdinand Levillain (1837-1905) was a French sculptor, goldsmith and medallist who studied under the sculptor Jouffroy (1806-1882), before making his debut in 1861 at the French Artists Salon where he continued to exhibit until 1903. At the 1867 Universal Exhibition in Paris, he was praised for a Neo-Greek style bronze cup he made for the firm Blot and Drouard. He was not to become really famous, however, until 1871 thanks to his association with the great bronze founder Ferdinand Barbedienne, who began to exhibit Neo-Greek style lamps, cups, vases and candelabras on his stands. Levillain was overwhelmingly triumphant at the 1878 Universal Exhibition in Paris, where he was unanimously awarded the gold medal for his creations in the Classical style. Ferdinand Barbédienne needs no introduction. Condition: Very small bump to the foot, see pictures, no other issues. This lot will be carefully packaged and sent by registered and insured mail.
