A Pair of Antique French Patinated Bronze Ewers with Bacchanalian Scenes-Late 1800's
Good Condition - Minor Rubs to Patination – Period Third Empire (1852-1870)
These antique French patinated bronze ewers depict very “busy” and mischievous Bacchanalian putti at play. A cherub sits atop the handle holding an item in his hands. The musicians are putti with horns, drums and possibly a flute and two dancing putti on either side; a cherub is pulling a goat by its horns towards the cart the goat should be pulling; a putto is sitting in the cart trying to steer, while two other putti are pushing and pulling the cart towards the goat.
The ornamentation is that of grapes and grape vines, rams’ heads, beading, stylized acanthus leaves, and birds.
