Louis-Constant Sévin was a designer who worked at the Barbedienne factory from the mid-19th century until his death in 1888. The Barbedinne factory was founded by the prolific bronzier, Ferdiand Barbedienne (1810-92). The company produced beautiful bronze items for an important international clientele, and won numerous awards at major exhibitions, including at the International Exhibition of 1862 in London and Paris’ Exposition Universalle of 1867. Sévin and Barbedienne collaborative pieces, like this rare offering, are now highly collectable.
