Description
Fine Napolean III jewel casket of oval form cast in bronze, and gilded decoration. A hinged lid cast naturalistically with a wading bird, and signed J Moigniez. The sides cast in relief with hunting dogs and woodland. A velvet, and moire lined interior. Circa 1870. Jules Moigniez (28 May 1835 – 29 May 1894) was a French animalier sculptor who worked during the 19th century. His output was primarily cast in bronze and he frequently exhibited his sculptures at the Paris Salon. He was best known for his bronzes depicting birds, although his skill and versatility enabled him to produce quality horse sculptures (primarily racehorses), dog sculptures and hunting scenes. His bird sculptures were among the finest ever created in his time.
