A group in Samson bisque after a model of Sevres representing the toilet of Venus ("La Toilette de Vénus"). This Louis XVI style bisque after Simon Louis Boizot (1743-1809) represents Venus seated, surrounded by three maids helping her with her toilet, assisted by two Loves. One of the maids presents Venus with two doves. The group rests on a pedestal decorated with a garland of roses and rosettes in braces.

 

The original made in 1780 is kept at the Chateaux de Versailles and Trianon. Mark of Samson with four interlaced S, imitating the mark of Sèvres. The plaster of the eighteenth century is kept at the Manufacture de Sèvres. Numbered: D 520

 

The bisques produced in Sèvres in the 18th century came back into fashion in the second half of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. An important production of copies of Sèvres bisques was developed from overmolds supplied by Sèvres itself to the Samson factory. These reproductions are of excellent quality.

 

19th Century Period

Circa: 1890.

Dim: W: 9,4 in - D: 9,4in - H: 15in.

 

Condition report: good condition. Restoration of the foot of one of the Loves.
