C1860 Pair French Bronze and Ormolu Ewers now as Electric Lamps (2nd Posting, more pictures)


This model of impressive ewer is not rare, nor inexpensive, as demonstrated by the number on 1st Dibs: https://www.1stdibs.com/buy/bronze-ewer/.

I am sure I have seen an identical pair of lamps whizz by in an episode of Downton Abbey: see photograph other listing!. The large scale ewers stand 57 cm tall, and with the lamp fittings and shades stand 82 cm tall. The bas reliefs on the central body are after Clodion. This pair is Second Empire, Napoleon III period. Many have, like these, later been turned into lamps.
