France, 19th century

Good condition, beautiful patina

This set clock, attributed to Ferdinand Barbedienne (1810-1892), was made in the 19th century. The base of the candelabrum and the clock rests on feet in the shape of elephant heads. The design of the feet and the presence of the symbol evoking the Shu ideogram are characteristic of the production of Édouard Lièvre (1828-1886), a leading figure in Japanese art in France.

The Barbedienne Foundry is a famous 19th century bronze foundry, whose statues and art objects became rapidly very renowned. This bronze studio co-worked with other trades, and put his name to a great variety of works, such as furnishing in particular. Attending every World's Fair of its time, the Barbedienne Foundry was regularly awarded, notably at the World's Fair of 1855 where it was awarded the Great Medal of Honor.
