PAIR OF GILT BRONZE AND IRON ANDIRONS WITH SITTING CHINESE COUPLE STYLE LOUIS XV.

Paris.
Date: Presumably 19th century.
Technique: Gilt bronze. Iron stand.
Description: Chinese couple with parrots sitting on a volute-shaped wall decorated with acanthus leafs.
Measurement: 37x39x73cm.


Provenance:
Private collection southern Germany.

Literature:
Hans Ottomeyer and Peter Pröschel: Vergoldete Bronzen, vol. 1, Munich 1989. Regarding this type copmpare fig. 2.4.5 and 2.6.1.

The two andirons mark the high point of the so-called "goût pittoresque". Nature is integrated into the interior decoration as a bizarrely exaggerated decorative element. In addition, there is the representation of the foreign, the exotic in the form of the sitting Chinese couple, who are now at the service of a supposedly cultivated world.
