Object Description

A Large and Finely Cast Neo-Grec Gilt and Patinated Bronze Jardiniere by Ferdinand Barbedienne.

Signed ‘F. BARBEDIENNE’.

This rare Jardinière or planter is a fine example of the ‘Neo-Grec’ or ‘Pompeian’ style modelled after the antique, which featured prominently in Barbedienne’s submissions to the 1855 Paris ‘Exposition Universelle’ and throughout the firm’s production.

Of rectangular form, the modelling is typical of the high-quality work Barbedienne produced at this time, finely cast in bas-relief with a procession of classical figures and animals, with foliate cast handles and exuberant fronded acanthus to each corner, terminating in claw feet.

French, Circa 1870.
