A pair of antique vases made out of cast iron with dragons and a mythological decoration after the bronze model by Claude Ballin for the Chateau de Versailles

Dimensions:
Width: 28'' ⅜  72cm
Height: 31'' ⅛  79cm

Origin:
France, 19th century

Status:
Aged patina.

This beautiful pair of antique vases was made out of cast iron in the 19th century after a model created for the Versailles Palace by Claude Ballin. The original vase, made out of bronze and exposed on the Parterre du Midi at the Versailles Palace , was a successful model, widely relayed by the many engravings that circulated.
This gadrooned vase is decorated with scenes from Ovid's "Metamorphoses": Apollo fighting the Python snake (here represented as a dragon, which also explains the presence of dragons to figure the handles of this vase).

Price: on request
