Centerpiece "The Naiad", attributed to G. Denière, France, circa 1870
By Guillaume Denière
Located in PARIS, FR
Exceptional centerpiece in silvered and gilded bronze, composed of a naiad riding a dolphin, supporting a chiseled shell decorated with reeds, adorned with the head of a river god on its bow and on which a winged love blows in a conch. The whole rests on a pedestal decorated with dolphin heads and cut-out leathers, ending with a porphyry base with molded steps. Historical and artistic context Centers and naves of tables are attested in France from the Middle Ages in order to present spices and other condiments brought from distant lands around the Mediterranean or from the trade of the Silk Roads. The importance of their presence on prestigious tables will be confirmed throughout the decorative arts, evolving during the 19th century in centerpieces, becoming a central element of decoration. Here we find a true virtuosity in the composition and representation of the human figure which is reminiscent of the greatest artists of the Italian Renaissance. Indeed, the fluidity of the lines of the naiad can be compared to the nymph of Fontainebleau by Benvenuto Cellini preserved at the Louvre museum and dated 1545, while the naturalist representation of the marine setting refers to the work of Wenzel Jamnitzer...

A Large Louis Philippe Period Gilt-Bronze Table Centrepiece
By Guillaume Denière
Located in Brighton, West Sussex
A Large Louis Philippe Period Gilt-Bronze Table Centrepiece or Corbeille (Fruit Basket). Attributed to Guillaume Denière (1815-1903), Paris, Circa 1840. The four sculptural figures of seated children are attributed to Jean-Jacques Feuchère (1807-1852) and represent the four elements of Fire, Water, Earth, and Air. Each figure is accompanied by its corresponding attribute. Fire holds a flaming torch and sits atop a dragon. Water sits atop a dolphin and perhaps originally held a trident spear. Earth holds grapes and ears of wheat accompanied by a lioness and cub. Air holds a billowing robe and sits atop an exotic bird. The circular top of the centrepiece with beaded rim and cast in relief to the basin with strapwork and lion masks. The underside of the basin similarly cast with additional detail of herm figures above a belt of intertwined vine leaf and mice. The whole supported on a baluster upright hung with volutes and fruiting swags above a spreading socle and oval foot. This impressive centrepiece dates to the late 1830s or early 1840s when the patronage of King Louis Philippe I of France heralded a pronounced flourishing in the sculptural art of metallurgy. Such a specific dating can be made with reference to a surtout de table which was commissioned in 1834 by Ferdinand-Philippe, duc d’Orléans and eldest son of King Louis Philippe. That famous and documented surtout de table, comprised centerpieces, candelabra and tazze modelled in a new sculptural style with figures, animals and naturalistic decoration. Designed in the Renaissance revival style by Claude-Aimé Chenavard (1798–1838) and Jean-Baptiste-Jules Klagmann (1810–1867) and made by Chenavard’s pupil Guillaume Denière, the duc d’Orléans surtout was a ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ with input from many designers, modellers and sculptors including from Jean-Jacques Feuchère (1807-1852), Pierre-Jules Cavelier (1814- 1894) and Antoine-Louis Barye (1795–1875). The surtout was delivered to Ferdinand-Philippe’s apartments at the Tuileries Palace in April 1839. Ferdinand Philippe, duc d’Orléans died in a carriage accident three years later, on 13 July 1842 and following the French Revolution of 1848 the extensive surtout was sold by his widow, the former Duchesse Hélène of Mecklenburg-Schwerin (1814-1858) at Hôtel Drouot, Paris, 18-20 January 1853. It was divided into multiple lots with the sculptural centrepieces by Antoine-Louis Barye, candelabra and decorative dishes widely dispersed. The present centrepiece compares closely to multiple elements of the duc d’Orléans surtout de table, most obviously in the profusion of Renaissance revival strapwork and the figures of children which in appearance, pose and allegorical purpose are directly comparable to related figures of children variously employed as attributes for music, feasting and hunting across the centrepieces and candelabra which make up the Orléans surtout de table. Compare a pair of candelabra titled ‘candelabra with woman playing flute...
