Louis XVI Style Gilt-Bronze Gueridon after Adam Weisweiler, French, circa 1900



A fine Louis XVI style gilt-bronze gueridon in the manner of Adam Weisweiler, by Zwiener Jansen Successeur. The stretcher stamped '1768' and 'ZJ' This rare gueridon has a green fluorspar circular top above a laurel and rose cast frieze on a blued steel background and raised on four tapering legs headed by finely cast gilt-bronze female caryatids, united by a trefoil loop stretcher and put down on stiff leaf cast feet. The design of the leg is derived from a mount used by the ébéniste Adam Weisweiler for use on the angles of secretaires and for the legs of a table delivered by Daguerre in 1784 for Queen Marie-Antoinette, See M. Segoura, Weisweiler, Paris, 1983, p. 42. The pattern was adopted in the 19th century by amongst others Louis-Auguste-Alfred Beurdeley (1808-1882) and his son Alfred Henry Dasson (1825-1896) and Zwiener see C. Payne, 19th Century European Furniture, Woodbridge, Suffolk, 1985, p. 226. Zwiener Jansen Successeur was part of the celebrated firm of Maison Jansen. Founded in Paris in 1880 by Jean-Henri Jansen (1854-1929) Maison Jansen was the first truly global interior design house. Around 1895-1900 Jansen bought some of the master models of the celebrated furniture maker Joseph-Emmanuel Zwiener, who had left Paris to return to Germany, and renamed the business 'Zwiener Jansen Successeur'. Jansen continued to faithfully produce Zwiener's creations, using the original models and lavishing the utmost care on these meubles de luxe. French, circa 1900.
