An important pair of highly decorative, authentic 19th century Neo-Classical patinated bronze water pitchers in the traditional garden cherub theme by celebrated French sculptor Edmond Louis Auguste Leveque (1814-1875). Leveque's works have sold at such prestigious auctions as Sotheby's, Christie's, Bonham's & others, and there is a Leveque statue of a Nymph in the Tuileries Garden (see photos), located between the Louvre Museum and the Place de la Concorde, in Paris.

Water pitchers have been used in art for millenia, and because water is the source of life, traditioanlly have a wide variety of symbolism almost always revolving around good fortune, fertility, success, wealth, and the NeoClassical theme of these antique pitchers, young cherub children playing around water flora, perfectly represents all of these meanings.
