*This pair of brûle-parfums is after the model attributed to Pierre-Philippe Thomire from the study of Empress Eugénie at the Tuileries, today in the Louvre (OA 5505). The model was later copied by Paul Sormani in the 1870s.Although we were unable to find Sormani’s signature on the bronze, Sormani was the only bronzier at that time period to create this brûle parfums model, and the quality of chasing on this piece are indicative of his work.
Paul Sormani ( 1817 – 1877 ) one of the most recognized 19th century French cabinet maker. Paul Sormani established his firm in 1847 at 7 Cimetiere Saint-Nicolas in Paris. Sormani participated in major international exhibitions of 1855, 1862 and 1867. Awarded a bronze medal in 1849 and a first-class medal in 1855. At the Universal Exhibition of 1867, his work has been described as “a quality of workmanship of the highest order".
