The size measures 35.5 x 30 x 17 cm.Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur BerlinThe first porcelain manufactory at Berlin was founded on the suggestion of Frederick the Great by Wilhelm Caspar Wegely and J. Benckgraff in 1752, yet already 5 years later production was stopped because the king was not satisfied with the porcelain. With the invasion of Meissen by the Prussian army, many modelers and porcelain painters came to Berlin, where in 1761 the merchant Johann Ernst Gotzkowsky founded a new factory. This was finally bought in 1763 by Frederick the Great, who named it ‘Royal Porcelain Factory’ and introduced the cobalt blue scepter mark. During this time, the factory began producing exquisite tableware in a late Rococo style, which was painted with flowers, birds and scenes after Watteau Boucher and Dutch masters in vivid colors. Famous porcelain painters of the manufactory were K. W. Böhme, B. Böhme and K. J. C. Klipfel; master modelers were Friedrich Elias Meyer and his brother Wilhelm Christian. Typical Berlin porcelain patterns on tableware were moldings, scale-ground borders, landscapes, birds and animals, molded basketwork patterns and pierced rims. After Theodor Schmuz-Baudiß took over as artistic director in 1798, the tableware was decorated in underglaze painting with landscapes and cityscapes in delicate colors. In 1871 the factory was moved to its present location at the Tiergarten near the Spree, so that the raw materials and finished products were finally able to be transported by ship. In 1886 the painting of porcelain tiles was added as a new line of production under the direction of Professor Alexander Kips. After the destruction of the factory during WWII, KPM was taken over in 1988 by the state of Berlin and since 2006 has been in the possession of Berlin based private banker Jörg Woltmann.

Thus Bazile Le Roy is regarded as founder of the house LeRoy. In 1828, his son Louis-Charles Le Roy joined the company as a partner and from this time on they operated as LeRoy et Fils. From 1829 onwards they worked as watchmakers to the courts of the Dukes of Bourbon and Chartres. Over time, the company changed hands several times, but in 1879 came back into family ownership. During the entire time, however, the name LeRoy et Fils remained. The manufactory was especially famous for high quality pocket watches and marine chronometers. Louis LeRoy took over the management in 1879 together with Jules Halley de Fontaines and they renamed the company to LeRoy et Cie. Some of Louis' brothers also joined the company or became business partners. Due to elaborate innovations and awards, for example the invention of the precursor of the ‘Automatic’ in 1920 or the achieving of the Grand Prix at the International Exhibition in Saint-Louis in 1904, LeRoy et Cie remained very successful until well into the 20th century.

The founder of the watchmaking dynasty, Jean-André Lepaute, had established the business in the mid-1740s, in 1747 his younger brother Jean Baptiste Lepaute got on board. Both brothers were appointed royal clockmakers and signed their clocks ‘Lepaute Horologer du Roi’. In 1774 Jean-André’s two nephews, Pierre-Basile and Pierre Henry Lepaute entered the company as partners and on the 14th of May 1789 eventually took over the business. However, in 1795, Pierre Henry left his cousin and form this time onwards, produced clocks with the signature ‘Henry à Paris’ and ‘Henry Lepaute à Paris’. Pierre-Basils’ nephew Jean-Joseph founded the workshop ‘Lepaute neveu à Paris’ in 1811, which he later handed on to his son-in-law and cousin Augustin-Michel Henry. At the same time, Pierre-Basil established the business ‘Lepaute & Fils‘ together with his son Pierre-Michel, whereby they continued to use the signature ‘Lepaute à Paris’ as well as the title ‘Horologer de l'Empereur’ and ‘Horologer du Roi’.

While the factory was located at Montbéliard, there was a sales office in Paris, on Vieille-du-Temple. Over the years, the company has won many awards, such as a bronze medal in 1860 and a gold medal in 1900. From 1863 onwards, the company Japy Freres & Cie, A. Roux & Cie and S. Marti & Cie closely cooperated in the merchandising of their produced clocks. Around 1890 son Samuel Augustus Marti took over the management. Later, the factory was presumably taken over by Peugeot.

He absolved his education as pupil of Antide Janvier and he quickly acquired a reputation as competent watchmaker. In 1803 he established his own business. Several years later, Pons was appointed by France’s Minister of the Interior, Jean-Baptiste de Nompère de Chamapgny, to halt the decline of the watchmaking industry in Saint-Nicholas d'Aliemont. With his help, some transformations and the formation of a guild, it was possible to reestablish the French watch industry and so manufacture and export of clock was saved. Over the years, the watchmaker was awarded several medals, e.g. he won two silver medals in 1819 and in 1834 a gold medal for his outstanding movements and escapements. Pons was furthermore appointed Knight of the Legion of Honor in 1819 and remained active within the watch industry until 1847.

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Bronze with brown patinaVienna/Austria, circa 1900Carl Kauba (1865-1922) – Austrian sculptor and maker of small sculptures, active also in ParisMonogrammed ‘K’ on the underside of the tailLength: circa 36 cm, height: 24 cmGood conditionThe current highest auction record for a similar bronze by Kauba is more than €40.000 Vienna Bronze The term ‘Vienna Bronze’ refers to very fine cast bronzes from the period of around 1880 to 1930. The very naturalistic small sculptures depict human figures, often with exotic features, humans and animals, humorous illustrations as well as erotica. The bronzes were so fashionable that there were 80 companies in Vienna, which concentrated on these products. A large number of significant artistic works was melted during the world wars to meet the metal needs of the artillery, thus the bronzes are now not only treasures but rare collectibles. Condition: The bronze is in good condition, showing some abrasion of the patina in part. The length is circa 36 cm, and the height measures 24 cm. Carl Kauba (1865-1922) After training as a chaser, Carl Kauba graduated from the college of chasers and bronze sculptors. He studied at the school of arts and crafts in Vienna under the professors Laufenberg, Waschmann and Schwartz. He later completed his studies in Paris. Kauba’s polychrome, very detailed and realistic sculptures make him one of the leading ‘Viennese bronze’ artists. Fascinated by the adventure novels of the German author Karl May, his expressive illustrations mostly show Wild West motifs, like cowboys and Native Americans that he made for the American market. The sculptor directed the casting of the clay models himself. (cko) Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.

In 1871, he debuted at the Antwerp salon with the allegorical group Der Krieg. In the same year, Lambeaux began studying as pupil of Joseph Geefs. From 1897-81 he lived in Paris and shared a studio with the painters Jan van Beers and Gustave Vanaise. He then worked in Brussels, where he worked for Castan's Panopticum. A scholarship enabled Lambeaux to stay in Italy from 1882 to 1883, where he mainly studied works by Giambologna in Florence. The early works are of a rather sentimental-pittoresque character and are compared with the works of sculptor Jérôme Duquesnoy. Between 1890 and 1900 his most famous work was made, the 7 m wide high relief Die menschlichen Leidenschaften (marble). His works are, among others, in Marienmont palace garden, at the Musées royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique in Antwerp and Brussels, and at the Oostende Museum of Fine Arts.

Fournier 1884’Portrait bust of a Chinese Emperor, presumably Guangxu, or of a MandarinTraditional garments with hat, tangzuhang, long beard and plaitIn the style of Charles Henri Joseph Cordier (1827-1905)Color intensive designFacial features and materially worked clothing rendered close to natureDimensions: c. 77 x 50 x 30 cmProvenance: Alberto Bruni Tedeschi’s CollectionOrientalist bust with strikingly vibrant color scheme Orientalism in art began in the 18th century with the role of exclusive import goods such as Chinese porcelain and ‘chinoiserie’ fashion. The increasing of the domination of Europe over the Middle East led to romanticized notions about the Orient, marked by sensuality and decadence. Towards the end of the 19th century, Orientalism was in its golden age and influenced not only the subjects in painting but also the decor and architecture.Numerous busts and statues with oriental motifs have also been created, such as offered bust and works of Charles Henri Joseph Cordier. Like Corider, Fournier tried to achieve a rich color effect, which present work exemplary testifies.Condition:The bust is in a good condition, consistent with age. It bears minor signs of age and wear. The paint is partially bumped. The base has been restored, in places several small blemishes can be seen here. There exists an image of the signature prior to the restoration. In places, slight surface abrasion is visible. The dimensions of the bust measure c. 77 x 50 x 30 cm.Louis Fournier (19th century)The sculptor, who was born in Saint-Donat-sur-l'Herbasse in France, exhibited at the Salon de Paris from 1864 to 1872. His portrait busts and medallions depicted contemporary personalities, for example in marble or bronze. One of the busts that have been shown, portrayed the clergy Ouin-la-Croix and is now on display at the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Rouen. At the time of Louis Fournier, it were especially oriental themes that were in fashion, as the busts and sculptures by Charles Henri Joseph Cordier testify. Both artists pursued - besides the choice of similar motives - the achievement of a rich color effect. (nlu) Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.
