This is a stunning pair of antique French twin handle two-tone gilt bronze garniture lidded urns, circa 1870 in date.

These splendid urns have exquisite cast side handles with beautiful grapes and vine decoration. The ormolu lids feature superb reclining cherubs.
 
They are superbly cast with continuous scenes of delightful dancing cherubs  and a distinctive goat, above writhen fluted lower bodies and leaf cast circular bases.

Goats in art have been associated with the worship of Bacchus (the God of Wine), which explains the appropriateness of the presence of goats in these Neo-Classical style urns' scenes, which indeed bears a distinctive bacchanalian theme. 
 
This high-quality hot cast solid bronze pair of urns were produced using the traditional "lost wax" process, otherwise known as the "cire perdue" method.
 
Each urn comes is raised on a resplendent giltwood and blue velvet stand.
 
This pair of lidded urns represents timeless elegance and will no doubt receive the maximum amount of attention wherever placed.

Condition:

In good condition. As antique items, the pieces show signs of use commensurate with age, these minor condition issues are mentioned for accuracy and, as seen in the accompanying photographs, the urns display beautifully.

Lost Wax Method
sometimes called by the French name of cire perdue or the Latin, cera perduta is the process by which a bronze or brass is cast from an artists sculpture.

In industrial uses, the modern process is called investment casting. An ancient practice, the process today varies from foundry to foundry, but the steps which are usually used in casting small bronze sculptures in a modern bronze foundry are generally quite standardised.
