Catalogue Note

Animals on gilt-bronze mounted bases are characteristic of the taste of collectors of the second half of the 18th century. Several descriptions of these types of objects can be found in sales catalogues of the time, as in the Louis-Jean Gaignat sale of 1768,  lot 113, described as a magot on a buffalo, recognisable in the catalogue annotated by Saint-Aubin and reproduced here. Examples of other objects with stoneware animals and figures are described in the Livre Journal de Lazare Duvaux, n°1664 and 2517.
