"Pierre Gouthière, Pair Of Cassolettes, Perfume Burner In Gilt Bronze And Marble, XIXth Time"
According to Pierre Gouthière. Large pair of Athenian-shaped casseroles in chiseled and gilded bronze. The fluted gray-green marble body is adorned in the upper part with an openwork gallery and a laurel frieze in chiseled and gilded bronze. The base consists of a tripod containing a coiled snake. Each upright is adorned at the top with a figure of a satyr and finished with goat feet. They are united by a garland of vines. Gray-green marble plinth and spinning tops. It is a model made at the beginning of the 19th century after the famous model by Pierre Gouthière created around 1770-1775 from a drawing by the architect-decorator François -Joseph Bélanger. The original model being kept at The Wallace Collection in London under number F292. It was made at the time for the Duke of Aumont in 1770 and then bought by Jean-Baptiste-Pierre Le Brun, on behalf of Queen Marie-Antoinette. The latter exhibited the casserole dish in her boudoir - the cabinet de la Méridienne - one of the very refined little rooms that made up her private apartments in Versailles, where she loved to display her most precious objects. Our copies differ in the stone used, gray-green marble marbled while that of the Queen was marbled red, and the legs were originally openwork and pierced with pearls while for ours, the pearls are full. We are faced with sumptuous and very decorative pieces, made in the noblest materials of the time and of a quality of execution close to perfection. Period early nineteenth century.
