19th CENTURY FRENCH PATE SUR PATE CENTERPIECE.

An exquisite 19th century French pate sur pate centerpeice measuring 7 ½” tall and 8” wide at the top. Markings underneath read: G & C IE, along with the numbers 97.

Pate sur Pate, literally translates as “Paste on Paste”. It was introduced by the painting department at Sevres in approximately 1849. White clay or “slip” is built up in layers giving a striking impression of depth and creating what has been referred to as a cameo-like effect. Stunning!

 

The markings indicate that this piece was made by Gibus & Cie. Pierre-Justin Gibus (1821-97) was a Limoges porcelain manufacturer who established Gibus & Cie in 1853, with partners Alpinien Margaine and Martial Redon. They exhibited in Paris in 1855 where they were praised for their fine and elegant pieces.

FINE PAIR OF 19th CENTURY FRENCH, SEVRES STYLE, PORCELAIN URN LAMPS. Hand painted and signed, these striking 19th century French, semi-paste, porcelain urns mounted as lamps are in the Sevres taste and very possibly from the esteemed Sevres Company. Romantic images of a nymph with cherub floating among swirls of brilliantly colored fabrics are most striking. Even the gilded bronze mounts (female masks in the neoclassical taste), are especially lovely. Each urn measures 15 “ in height and is signed Darthuy. Sevres produced some of the most exquisite porcelain throughout the 18th century. They enjoyed the patronage of King Louis XV and received much encouragement from his mistress, Madame de Pompadour. Some of the renowned artists who have painted for Sevres, include Francois Boucher and Jean-Honore Fragonard.
