An absolutely magnificent pair, the extensive design elements include four medallion busts on each ewer. They come from Paris and date from 1850-1860.

They are very heavy (seven pounds each). The patina to the bronze is a lovely two tone, giving added dimension to each element. Starting at the top, there are two reclining female figures which make up each handle. There is a lion's face with an arabesque crown at the center handle. Where the handle attaches to the body there is a laughing man's face. Around the center body of each ewer are four oval medallions (2 1/8" x 1 3/4"). Two of the medallions depict a beautiful young maiden with a fancy bonnet and chained necklace. The second two medallions depict a young man wearing a hat jauntily tilted to one side. Many design elements from scrolls, acanthus leaves, raised ovals and arabesques fill in around the main figures.

Each piece measures: 15 1/4" high,3 3/4" square at the base, 16 1/2" circumference (at center), the handle measures: 8" tall. Both ewers/urns are in solid and very good condition.

The exquisite design combined with the size and weight give this pair an impressive air. They are fine examples of the incredible work in decorative arts from the era.
