Catalogue Note

The Parisian sculptor Henry Cahieux is recorded as having supplied the celebrated Barbedienne foundry with numerous master models for casting in bronze including, as with the present lot, vases ornamented with bas-relief in the Greek, Egyptian and Japanese revival style.

In 1855, this model, together with another,  was described as follows: "The two vases (...) selected from many exquisite and beautiful decorative works in bronze from the atelier of Messrs. Barbedienne & Cie, of Paris; they are formed, and ornamented, on the best models of the ancient Greeks."
