A Fine Pair of Classical Revival Patinated Bronze Vases, Designed by Henry Cahieux and Cast by Ferdinand Barbedienne, on red marble bases with gilt bronze paw feet.

This exceptional pair of patinated bronze urns was designed in the fashionable néo-grec style by the Parisian sculptor Henry Cahieux and cast by the fondeur Ferdinand Barbedienne.

This model of vase was exhibited by Barbedienne at the 1855 Paris Universelle Exhibition to great acclaim. They were illustrated in the Exhibition Catalogue alongside a classical revival tripod. The pair of vases together with another were described as follows: The two vases (...) selected from many exquisite and beautiful decorative works in bronze from the atelier of Messrs. Barbedienne & Cie, of Paris; they are formed, and ornamented, on the best models of the ancient Greek.
