A pair of monumental scale gilt bronze Empire vases with winged putti on the shoulders bearing swags above a fireze of neo-classical figures. The whole standing on a block plinth enriched with bejewelled bulls heads and laurel wreathes. Attributed to Claude Galle.

Claude Galle (1759-1815)was one of the most prominent ‘bronziers’ of the early empire. His work was widely praised for its precision and elegance. He supplied many pieces for both the grand trianon and the petit trianon at Versailles. He is also known to have provided work for the palais de Compiegne, the palais de Fontainbleau, the palais de Rambouillet, and the Palais de Saint-Cloud. He also sold to Italian clients and his work is well-represented at the Hunting Lodge at stupinigi outside Turin and the Palazzo Monte Cavallo in Rome.
