This is your chance to acquire an antique Grand Tour patinated bronze urn in the Barbedienne style and dating from around 1870. Offered for sale in truly excellent condition.

This stunning Renaissance style patinated bronze urn is cast in the manner of Barbedienne. Ferdinand Barbedienne was the owner of a foundry in Paris in the mid 1800s and, in conjunction with his partner, Achille Collas, the inventor of a clever machine that could mechanically reduce statues, they built a business making and selling bronze reductions of the antique Greek and Roman sculptures. This process was popular in that it made fine sculptures more accessible to art lovers.

The body of this piece is cast with a ribbon and floral garland frieze which is centred by a series of ox-skull maskheads. The bronze urn is further mounted with a pair of classical male figural handles.

This fine bronze urn is raised on an attractive fluted and laurel wreath pedestal situated on a square marble plinth base.

This antique bronze urn was hot cast in solid bronze using the traditional "lost wax" process, otherwise known as the "cire perdue" method and the standard of craftsmanship is right up there with the best. This bronze urn is not only in the style of Barbedienne but also to the high standard of workmanship employed by that master of bronze casting.
