Barbedienne Champleve Enamel Gilt Bronze Vase Attributed to Louis-Constant Sevin
This lovely gilt bronze vase with champleve enamel comes from Barbedienne of Paris, circa 1870s-1880s, and was likely designed by Louis-Constant Sevin (1821-1888). Measures 11 inches tall and 7.25 inches across (27.9 by 18.4 cm). In good condition. One leg is bent slightly, and each handle is a little loose. There's some paper label adhesive residue on the underside, and what appears to be a stress crack to the bronze visible on the underside. But we're not sure of this as the piece is structurally sound. There's surface grime in crevices, and rubbing and oxidation wear to the gilding in spots, including around the rim.
