Lot Essay

This delicate ormolu gueridon is typical of Emmanuel Zwiener's style which fuses the high-rococo opulence of the Louis XV with the Art Nouveau. It is a well-known model recorded by Maison Jansen who acquired the archives and rights of the Paris workshop of Zwiener around 1900, thus renaming it Zwiener Jansen Successeur. Accordingly, examples of this gueridon are often stamped 'ZJ'. One sold Christie's, London, 15 March 2012, lot 38 (£43,250); more recently one sold Christie's, New York, 16 October 2018, lot 36 ($22,500).
