Barbedienne, pair of cloisonne enamel vases.
Signed Barbedienne

Present to all the big World Fairs of the XIXth century the House BARBEDIENNE will accumulate the rewards.
The first tries of the House BARBEDIENNE in the field of the cloisonne appear in the years 1855-1858. From 1858 the House Barbedienne will present "- on the plans of Lassus, a big chandelier, style of the XIIth century, with enamels, for the Convent of Birds ..." (B. Metman). In 1862 in the World Fair of London, works of art overlaid with enamels presented by BARBEDIENNE will create a sensation. Qualified at the time of "enamels opaque, compartmentalized and levelled in the style of the former", these enamels are closer in reality to aspect of the medieval curred away examples (Mr Bascou) than compartmentalized oriental ones. The technical innovation consists in obtaining directly in the cast iron the bronze room with its network of partitions which will then be filled with powder of enamel agglutinated before having passed first time in the oven. After this cooking, we shall add some powder of enamel until cavities are filled. We shall remove then the roughnesses and, according to the desired depiction, we shall make either a simple polishing in the pumice for matt enamels or a polishing doubles, pounce bag then cork, to obtain brilliant enamels (In. Darcel).
