A Fine Jardinière By Ferdinand Barbedienne

Of elliptical form, rising from a square plinth with a moulded top edge, constructed in a finely veined Red Griotte marble, adorned with gilt bronze mounts, centred by scallop shells, issuing foliate arabesques, having loop handles, one of which is signed by the maker ‘F. Barbedienne’.
The Barbedienne Foundry commenced in 1838 under the leadership of Ferdinand Barbedienne and Achille Collas, casting high quality models for the leading sculptors of the age, including Barye, Fremiet and Clesinger, as well as ‘mechanical reductions’ of statuary from the Classical period, and individual commissions from clock & furniture makers. The factory, situated in Rue de Lancry, Paris, employed over 300 craftsmen; in the Franco-Prussian war of 1870, the French government had the company cast cannons to serve in the defence of Paris. The company eventually closed in 1952.
