Description: A pair of gilt and patinated bronze ewers in the manner of Clodion, circa 1880, each with entwined serpents forming the handle, descending past a waisted and fluted neck to a zoomorphic mask cast beneath the rising spout, above relief cast figural scenes of maidens and amorini in woodland landscapes, the foliate cast, fluted and knopped stems above oak wreath cast circular bases, 47cm high Note: Models of this ewer were supplied to the Wedgwood factory by John Flaxman snr. in 1775, but the original designs were probably copied or cast from models by Claude Michel Clodion (1738-1814), who possibly derived them from a model by Sigisbert-François Michel (1728-1811). See London, Royal Academy of Arts, John Flaxman, R.A., 26 Oct-9 Dec. 1979, David Bindman.
