Product Barcode Id: 00006237

    Realistic bronze sculptured high relief French vases signed by listed French brothers and sculpture artists Louis & Hippolyte Francois Moreau (L&F Moreau); the "L" stands for Louis Auguste (1855-1919), known for bronzes and metal sculptures. The "F" stands for Hippolyte Francois (1832-1927), both accomplished sculptors.

    The vases depict fresh and salt water: the first with a frog on lily pads with pond reeds and irises, and the other with a crab, seaweed and ocean waves with a bird and tree branch, all in stunning intricate, stark high relief, true works of art!

    Louis Moreau was born in Dijon, France in 1855 into a family of sculptors. He was the son of Auguste Moreau and brother of Hyppolyte Moreau.

He exhibited at the Paris Salon and also at the Exposition Universelle, winning a number of prizes. He specialized in allegorical and classical groups as well as well-known figures. Moreau went into partnership with his brother Hyppolyte for a time to produce decorative sculptures and created the L&F Moreau signature. His work can be found in the Perigord Museum of Art, France. These vases are artworks that will add elegance and taste to any decor! Bought near Paris, France. Price includes shipping.
