Antoine-Louis Barye (French, 1796-1875), "Panthére de l'India no. 1", bronze, signed

Item Description:

Signed 'BARYE', and inscribed: F. BARBEDIENNE. FONDEUR. Cast by the foundry of Ferdinand Barbedienne, "Panther of India no. 1" was listed in Barye's 1855 catalogue, later produced by Barbedienne after acquiring Barye's models after his death. The present example is probably cast circa 1870-90, the lower right edge marked with the early gilded raised FB mark coupled with the F. Barbedienne Fondeur inscription along the reverse of the sculpture. The surface is finished in a complex and compelling original patina, the primary green-black with reddish oxides and rubbed browns. Barbedienne's earliest examples are generally regarded as their finest, the present example being no exception with careful chasing and filing, perfect detailing of the panther's coat and features. The patina is silky to the touch.


Original patina, exceptional condition. Please contact for specific condition questions.
