Pair of Urns


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This pair of vases was manufactured by Barbedienne and Company. William and Henry Walters acquired numerous works made by the renowned French foundry; Barbedienne cast many bronzes modeled by Antoine-Louis Barye, a sculptor of animals who was a great favorite of the collectors. These vases were very likely designed by Louis-Contant Sévin, who, in 1855, became a designer at the Barbedienne firm.
Provenance Acquired by Colwill & McGehee, Baltimore; purchased by Walters Art Museum, Baltimore, 1989.
