A Fine Pair of Neo-Grec Style Gilt-Bronze Torchères Attributed to Ferdinand Barbedienne, The Design Attributed to Ferdinand Levillain.

Designs in the 'Neo-Grec' or Greek style modelled after the antique featured prominently in Barbedienne's submissions to the 1855 Paris Exposition Universelle and throughout the firms production.

This rare pair of torchères with their fine casting and modelling are typical of the high quality of work Barbedienne produced at this time. The distinctive handling of the decoration with chimerical heads and strapwork combined with stylised motifs taken from antiquity strongly identifies the 'Neo-Grec' or 'Pompeian' designs of Ferdinad Levillain, who was employed as Barbedienne's chief designer at this time.
