            • PIERRE-PHILIPPE THOMIRE (1751-1843). Pair of candlesticks. Gilded bronze and colorless glass.
              Jan. 31, 2024

              PIERRE-PHILIPPE THOMIRE (1751-1843). Pair of candlesticks. Gilded bronze and colorless glass.

              Est: €14,000 - €16,000

              PIERRE-PHILIPPE THOMIRE (1751-1843). Pair of candlesticks. Gilded bronze and colorless glass. Measurements: 112 x 31 x 31 cm (x2). Pair of large candlesticks, which have an identical decoration. This one is structured by a square base in gilded bronze with shaft made in colorless and carved glass and set of lights in bronze. Philippe Thomire was a French sculptor known, above all, for his work in gilded bronze, thanks to which he became the leading caster in France in the late eighteenth century, with an important workshop established in 1775. His career saw a surprising improvement when he began assisting Jean-Claude-Thomas Duplessis, the artistic director of the Manufacture de Porcelaine de Sèvres, and, when the latter died in 1783, Thomire continued his work, creating the bronze mounts for works that combined it with porcelain. Such was his success that he continued to work during the French Revolution. In 1804 he expanded the business by buying the workshop of a cabinetmaker, which allowed him to work with furniture. He worked for Napoleon and also did so after the fall of Napoleon, retiring at the age of 72 and, even then, continuing to create sculpture (he exhibited at the Salon de Paris). Claude Michallon was a French sculptor trained at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, a student of Charles-Antoine Bridan (1730-1805) and Guillaume Coustou. In 1785 he won the grand prize for sculpture with a bas-relief representing Brutus. He studied at the Académie de France in Rome for six years, until 1791. When he returned to Paris, he received commissions for colossal statues and won several prizes awarded by the Committee of Public Information. He competed for several projects in Paris. Claude Michallon presented his marble group d'Aconce et Cydippe at the Paris Salon in 1793, and created several models for watch cases, such as Cupid and Psychée. Among others, Pierre-Philippe Thomire cast bronzes closely following his models.

              Nov. 24, 2023

              Ein Paar Girandolen "à femme adossée"

              Est: CHF12,000 - CHF15,000

              Paris, um 1805/10. Empire. P.P. THOMIRE (Pierre Philippe Thomire, 1751 Paris 1843). Matt-, glanzvergoldete und patinierte Bronze, "Griotte Rouge"-Marmor. Eine weibliche Figur lehnt sich an eine Stele und trägt eine Deckelvase auf dem Haupt. Sie ist von vier auffallend geschwungenen Lichtarmen mit Tüllen in Form von Lotusblüten umgeben. Das Ganze ruht auf einem rechteckigen Podest, das mit einer Lyra-Applikation versehen ist, und einer Sockelplatte, die mit Palmetten verziert ist. Mit Gutachten von J.D. Augarde, Paris 2017. Alters- und Gebrauchsspuren Das hier präsentierte Modell wurde von P.P. Thomire in den Jahren 1801/02 entwickelt. Es fand auch Erwähnung in seinem Inventar von 1814, wo es mit 590 Francs bewertet wurde. Ähnliche Modelle wurden mehrmals versteigert: bei Sotheby's New York am 12.10.1963 (Katalognr. 646), bei Sotheby's Zürich am 29.11.1995 (Katalognr. 272), bei Koller Zürich am 7.11.1964 (Katalognr. 2163) und bei Christie's in London und Paris 2008 (Katalognr. 192 und 271). Ein Paar mit "Vert de Mer"-Sockel ist sogar Teil der königlichen Sammlung im Buckingham Palace. Vier Jahre nach Erhalt des Titels "Maître fondeur-ciseleur" im Jahr 1772 fügte Thomire den Zusatztitel "doreur" hinzu. Im Jahr 1783 wurde er bei der Manufacture de Sèvres der Nachfolger von C. Duplessis. Thomire war nicht nur vielseitig ausgebildet, sondern arbeitete auch mit renommierten Künstlern wie J.A. Houdon zusammen. Seine Kontakte zu N. Delaistre, J.J. Foucou, P.P. Prud'hon und P.L. Roland machten ihn in den 1780er-Jahren zum besten "fondeur-ciseleur" in Paris. Durch internationale Aufträge, vor allem aus Spanien und Russland, stieg die Nachfrage so stark, dass er 1807 ein Team von über 200 Angestellten benötigte. Thomires Anerkennung war weitreichend. Schon während des Directoire erhielt er eine Goldmedaille bei der Ausstellung der "Produits industriels", eine Ehrung, die ihm und seiner Firma bis zu seinem Lebensende bei jeder Ausstellung zuteilwurde. 1834 wurde er sogar von König Louis-Philippe in die "Légion d'Honneur" aufgenommen. Trotz späterer finanzieller Herausforderungen seines Unternehmens blieb er bis zu seinem Rückzug im Jahr 1823 eine dominierende kreative Kraft. Lit.: J.

              Est: €10,000 - €12,000

              Empire candlestick attributed to PIERRE-PHILIPPE THOMIRE (1757-1843). France, ca. 1820. Gilt bronze. Onyx top. It has castors. It has an antique label on the back. Measurements: 75 x 82 x 82 cm. Gueridon type candlestick attributed to the French bronze artist Pierre-Philippe Thomire. The support, in gilded bronze, has been finely chiselled in its moulded shaft and claw feet. The stem is decorated with vegetal sheaths of acanthus and palmettes. The circular table, with a marbled onyx top, is outlined with a bronze fretwork of laurel leaves executed with exquisite chisel work. As was characteristic of the period, and in particular of Thomire's furniture, the piece presents a singular historicist syncretism, freely re-reading the past. Thomire was a French sculptor best known for his work in gilt bronze, which made him the leading caster in France in the late 18th century, with an important workshop established in 1775. His career saw a striking improvement when he began to assist Jean-Claude-Thomas Duplessis, the artistic director of the Manufacture de Porcelaine de Sèvres, and when the latter died in 1783, Thomire continued his work, creating the bronze mounts for works that combined it with porcelain. Such was his success that he continued to work during the French Revolution. In 1804 he expanded the business by buying the workshop of a cabinetmaker, which enabled him to work with furniture. Other works of interest were the chandeliers for the palaces of Fontainebleau and Compiègne, the Trianon table with legs in the shape of caryatids, the eight pieces for the centrepiece of Prince Louis Bonaparte's table (Musée Marmottan) and a twenty-four-armed chandelier with figures of winged women playing musical instruments made for Talleyrand (Musée Marmottan). He retired in 1823, although he continued to produce sculptures sporadically. King Louis-Philippe awarded him the Legion of Honour.

              Est: $20,000 - $30,000

              A pair of very fine quality gilt-bronze and bronze candelabra, attributed to Pierre-Philippe Thomire (1751-1843) French, early 19th century Provenance: Partridge,New Bond Street,London, circa 1986 The Estate of Judith and Bruce Terry, Teychell,16 Moule Avenue Brighton Victoria.Australia. These extraordinary candelabra display a myriad of Classical symbolism, so popular in France during the Empire period. The central figures, with arms up-stretched, possibly represent Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess associated with love, lust, beauty and passion. Sacred to Aphrodite was the swan which was seen itself as a traditional symbol of beauty and grace in ancient Greece. The swan was also sacred to Apollo, the god of music in Greek mythology and hence the finely matt gilded swans that surmount these candelabra. Cherub trumpeters and rearing horses further embellish these impressive candelabra and it all adds to a sense of victorious heroism that inspired design around the time of Napoleon Bonaparte between 1800-1815. Pierre-Philippe Thomire (1751–1843) a French sculptor, was the most prominent bronzier, or producer of ornamental patinated and gilt-bronze objects and furniture mounts of the First French Empire in the neo-classical and Empire style. The young artisan first appeared in records with a set of gilt-bronze wall-lights delivered for Marie-Antoinette's card-room, which were chased by Thomire. He established his own shop in 1776. In 1783–84 Thomire received his first notable commission, casting and finishing the gilt-bronze handles modelled by Louis-Simon Boizot for a pair of Sèvres porcelain vases, which today divide their time between the Musée du Louvre and the Palazzo Pitti. Under the Empire period in France, Thomire purchased fashionable premises in Rue Taitbout, Paris and exhibited at the 1806 Exposition Publique des Produits de l'Industrie, where he won a gold medal. His most prestigious commission was the execution of the cradle for the King of Rome, which was designed by Pierre Paul Prud'hon and in which Thomire collaborated with the Imperial silversmith Odiot. In a second cradle that was commissioned, Thomire alone was responsible. At the height of his business it was estimated that Thomire employed six or seven hundred workers. Under the Restauration, Thomire Duterme et Cie retained the finest clientele, among them Monsieur, the King's brother, the duc de Berry, and as furnishers to the Garde Meuble de la Couronne. Thomire cast and finished a martial allegory sculpted by Louis-Simon Boizot and applied to the upper corners of a secretary desk by Guillaume Beneman, delivered for the King's cabinet intérieure at Compiègne, 1787. In a notable commission for Count Nicolay Demidoff in 1819, Thomire produced finely-made figures of Fame with doubled trumpets to serve as handles for the massive malachite-veneered vase now at the Metropolitan Museum. Thomire retired from his firm in 1823.

              PIERRE-PHILIPPE THOMIRE (GROUP / SCHOOL) 1751 - 1843 - A PAIR OF EMPIRE CANDELABRA

              Est: -

              The extremely well-crafted impressive paired candlesticks, which can also be used as wall lamps, are probably the work of Pierre-Philippe Thomir, one of the most important designers and bronzers of the French Empire (he received the title of ciseleur de l'Empereur in 1809). At the beginning of the 19th century, the French began to change their dining habits when, around 1810, the imperial court and the upper classes abandoned the earlier tradition of service à la française, where all courses were put on the table at once, in favor of service à la russe, where the food was presented one at a time. This meant that the table, devoid of numerous serving dishes, looked rather empty. As a result, the table decorations became more lavish, while at the same time the tablecloth evolved as the ideal solution for decorating the central part of a long dining table. The large bronzes offered with a top-cut basket holding swans and putti with wreaths on a round ornate fluted base were conceived as part of such a table arrangement. The basket was intended to hold fruit, candies, or floral arrangements. The top was fitted with a separate ring for candles. Analogous pairs of candlesticks/trays attributed to Thomir are now in the Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan or the Phoenix Art Museum. Excellent condition. Country: France, Location: Paris

              Pierre-Philippe Thomire (French, 1751-1843), Pair of French Empire Parcel Gilt Bronze Figural Candelabra early 19th century, female and male Classical figures dressed in Nemean lion skin robes, supporting a doré bronze four light candelabra with scrolling upswept foliate and floral branch arms, terminating in foliate urn capitals with removable bobeches, mounted atop a doré bronze domed plinth with stylized foliate patterned motifs. Both impressed THOMIRE À PARIS to the base. 29 1/4 x in. x 11 x 9 1/2 in. Pierre-Philippe Thomire was trained as a sculptor and bronzier, receiving his bronze casting and gilding technique in the workshop of Pierre Gouthière, the virtuoso French bronze chaser and gilder who worked for Louis XV and Louis XVI. Thomire also assisted Jean-Claude-Thomas Duplessis, the artistic director of the Sèvres Porcelain Manufactory, in making mounts for Sèvres porclelan. After Duplessis' passing in 1783, Thomire received all of this work, keeping him in business throughout the French Revolution. In 1783-84, he received his first notable commission, casting and finishing the gilt-bronze handles modeled by Louis-Simon Boizot for a pair of Sèvres porcelain vases, today included in collections of the Musée du Louvre and Palazzo Pitti. In 1804, he bought the business of a "marchand-mercier," allowing him to sell furniture, Sèvres porcelain, and decorative objects such as this pair of candelabra. In 1809, the Emperor Napoleon made him "ciseleur de l'empereur" (Engraver to the Emperor), and his firm became fournisseur de leurs majestés (Furniture Suppliers to their Majesties) two years later. At the height of his business, it was estimated Thomire employed six or seven hundred workers to assist with his thriving business. Pierre-Philippe retired at the age of seventy-two, but continued to work as a sculptor, exhibiting at the Salon until he was in his eighties. His work is in many museum collections, as well as private and public collections internationally. Additional high-resolution photos are available at www.lelandlittle.com

              Est: €1,500 - €2,000

              Pair of lamps; after PIERRE-PHILIPPE THOMIRE (1751-1843), late 19th century. Gilt and blued bronze. Height adjustable lamps. Dimensions: 42 x 11 x 11 cm (sculpture, x2); 62 x 25 x 17 x 17 cm (total, x2). Pair of Thomire style lamps, made in gilded and blued bronze. Both have the same structure, which consists of a square base on which rests a cylindrical body that gives way to a round sculpture. This sculpture represents a winged victory, dressed in a tunic in the style of wet cloths. At the back, a mechanism can be seen that allows the height of the shaft of each of the lamps to be adjusted. At the top, the fabric lampshade has a pleated design. Philippe Thomire was a French sculptor best known for his work in gilded bronze, which made him the leading caster in France in the late 18th century, with an important workshop established in 1775. His career saw a striking improvement when he began to assist Jean-Claude-Thomas Duplessis, the artistic director of the Manufacture de Porcelaine de Sèvres, and when the latter died in 1783, Thomire continued his work, creating the bronze mounts for works that combined it with porcelain. Such was his success that he continued to work during the French Revolution. In 1804 he expanded the business by buying the workshop of a cabinetmaker, which enabled him to work with furniture. He worked for Napoleon and also did so after his fall, retiring at the age of 72 and even then continuing to create sculpture (he exhibited at the Paris Salon). Claude Michallon was a French sculptor trained at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, a pupil of Charles-Antoine Bridan (1730-1805) and Guillaume Coustou. In 1785 he won the grand prize for sculpture with a bas-relief depicting Brutus. He studied at the Académie de France in Rome for six years until 1791. When he returned to Paris, he received commissions for colossal statues and won several prizes awarded by the Committee of Public Information. He competed for several projects in Paris. Claude Michallon presented his marble group d'Aconce et Cydippe at the Paris Salon in 1793, and created several models for watch cases, such as Cupid and Psychée. Among others, Pierre-Philippe Thomire cast bronzes in the following manner
