    Bronze Figure of ‘Mercury’ on Slate and Bronze Pedestal Base – 35 inches Tall.

    Bronze Figure of ‘Mercury’ on Slate and Bronze Pedestal Base – 35 inches Tall.

    A handsome large bronze figure of ‘Mercury’  the Ancient Roman Olympian god, who was the messenger of the Gods. He was frequently portrayed with wings on his cap and heels to signify his swiftness.  The lower part of the statue’s base is decorated with images of cherubs playing flutes. The upper section of the base transforms into a head that is blowing wind onto Mercury’s foot. The head personifies one of the “winds”. The statue has several distinct features; in Mercury’s right hand he holds what appears to be a vial and in the left he holds his attribute, the caduceus, now a symbol of modern medicine.

    The original design is by Giambologna, (Flemish, 1529-1608), created around 1564.4.  Giambologna designed this statue as part of a fountain for the Medici in the Villa Medici in Rome. The head represented below symbolized the figure being “exhaled, purified, unburdened.”

    Measures:  35 inches high.

    Pair of Late 19th Century French Samson Porcelain – Chinoiserie Foo Dogs.

    Pair of Late 19th Century French Samson Porcelain – Chinoiserie Foo Dogs.

    A colourful pair of Chinoiserie Foo Dogs by French porcelain maker Samson, Edmie & Cie , late 19th Century.

    Wikipedia:
    Samson began his career by making service and set piece replacements in the late 1830s. In 1845 he opened the ceramics firm Samson, Edmé et Cie at 7, Rue Vendôme (later Rue Béranger) in Paris, with the intention of supplying reproductions of ceramics on display in museums and private collections.[1] The factory was moved to Montreuil, Seine-Saint-Denis in 1864 by Samson’s son, Emile Samson (1837–1913). The firm either drew inspiration from other factories, or directly copied their pieces.[2] 18th-century designs from the factories of Meissen, Sèvres, Chelsea, Worcester and Derby were among the reproductions Samson, Edmé et Cie produced, among designs copied from the other major European factories.[1]

    During the 19th century, the collectors’ market for antique fine china was considerable, and Samson’s firm reproduced ceramics in a breadth of styles including the faience and maiolica types of Italian pottery, Persian style dishes, Hispano-Moresquepottery (a blending of Islamic and European motifs, produced during the 13th to 15th centuries), plates in the FitzHugh pattern, as well as plates in the manner associated with Bernard Palissy. Also copied by the Samson firm were the early Qing dynastyfamille rose and famille verte Chinese porcelains and the so-called “Imari wares”, named for the Japanese port where a type of richly decorated porcelain made at Arita was shipped.[2] The firm exhibited at the International Exposition (1867) and the Exposition Universelle (1889).
