Object Description

A charming pair of ‘North and South Winds Maidens’ oval wall medallions,¬†after the 1889 Paris Art Nouveau Exhibition examples.
France, late 19th century.

Why we love them
These intricately framed bronzed bas-reliefs, mounted on reconstituted marble, represents the North and South Wind Maidens. This pair was likely a high-end “souvenir” of the original, award-winning work created at the same time as the 1889 Exhibition. The original work was a pair of carved marble cameos and garnered the original artist a medal of excellence at the Exhibition.
