Cast (and signed) in the early 20th century by Barbedienne of Paris, this pair of Greek Revival amphora vases after Ferdinand Levillain (1837-1905) feature monopodium feet and crown with draped male heads, and wonderful parcel-gilt decorations including a nude male playing pan pipes under a tree with goddess, and the other featuring a male sacrificing a goat to a god.  Measures:  12.5" tall each.  Slate bases have noticeable small chip losses at the edges, and one has a larger chip at the top of one corner.  Levillain was a student of Jouffroy and exhibited at Paris Salon  from 1861 and won a silver medal at the Paris Exposition of 1889.  A similar pair with rouge marble pedestals and overall gilt finish, cast by Barbedienne, were recently offered by Christie's in New York with an estimate of $20,000-$30,000.
