Object Description

A Neo-Grec Gilt and Patinated Bronze Tazza, Designed by Ferdinand Levillain and Cast By Ferdinand Barbedienne.

Marked ‘F. Levillain’ to the decoration and stamped ‘F. Barbedienne’ to the underside.

This rare tazza is a fine example of the collaboration between the gifted designer Ferdinand Levillain and the highly acclaimed bronzier Ferdinand Barbedienne. It is decorated with a bas-relief in the ‘Neo-Grec’ or ‘Pompeian’ style with classical figures herding animals in a procession.

Designs in the ‘Neo Grec’ style figured prominently in Barbedienne’s submissions to the 1855 Paris Exposition Universelle and throughout the firm’s production.

French, Circa 1870.
