$13,470.56

About

The bronze bust signed Emile Hébert, the dial signed Servant and the movement signed G & S Médaille d’Or, 1867. Close to the models exhibited at the 1867 Paris Universal Exhibition Black Onyx and red marble clock surmounted by a gilded and patinated bronze bust of Queen Cleopatra; the dial with pseudo-glyphic numbers and hieroglyphs for the Egyptian months of the civil year. Emile Hébert (1828-1893), studied sculpture with his father and the renowned artist Feuchère. He participated in all major exhibits, such the Salon of the French Artists from 1846 to 1893 with busts and mythological subjects, or the Paris Universal Exhibitions. At the 1867 Universal Exhibition, Hébert was awarded a gold medal for having collaborated on the clock described above (Exposition Universelle 1867, Groupe III, Classe 25, catégorie des bronzes d’art) with Georges Servant (1828- circa 1890), whom had a foundry, rue Vieille-du-Temple, in Paris, specialized in neo-Greek and neo-Egyptian style clocks. Hébert participated with equal success at the 1878 Universal Exhibition, where he won once again a gold medal for some other Egyptian style objects. The report of the jury (Exposition Universelle de 1878, Rapport sur les bronzes d’art, Groupe III, Classe 25, p.26) noticed, that “the chasing by Hébert is under perfect control and always appreciated by artists”. His antique style figures, Greek, Roman or Egyptian, are some of his most popular works following the tradition of ethnographic decorative sculpture in late 19th century France. Hébert became also renowned for having sculpted two allegories, La Comédie and Le Drame, for the façade of the Paris “Vaudeville” Theater.
