A French Art Nouveau faux mahogany and gilt wood mirror by Hector Guimard. Guimard's mirrors are exceptionally rare, and are desired because they are particularly architectural. For this piece, Guimard decorated a traditional arch motif with foliate faux-gilt bronze work. Guimard's dedication to the Art Nouveau arabesquing line is very evident in this handsome work. This mirror is, as far as we know, a pièce unique. Circa 1900.

A French Art Nouveau patinated bronze figural vase, entitled "Bacchanalia", by Antonin Larroux. The vase is called "Bacchanalia", inspired by the infamous Ancient Greek play, the Bacchae by Eurpides. In this play, Dionysus punishes Pentheus, the king of Thebes, and his mother, Agave, by driving all of the women of Thebes into a mad frenzy. The women of the city run off into the woods with Dionysus to have a bacchanalia.The vase captures the moment of the play where Dionysus has hypnotized the women of Thebes and they are all taking part in a wild orgy outside of the city. The female figures' faces all show them in a dazed ecstasy, with a grinning Dionysus at the center. The amphoric shape of the bronze is an allusion to Ancient Greek vessels, which is appropriate for a piece of art dedicated to the god of wine. A similar vase is pictured in: "The Paris Salons 1895-1915, Vol. V: Objects d'Art and Metalware" by Alastair Duncan, Woodbridge, Suffolk: Antique Collectors' Club, 1999, p. 370.
