Most often symbolizing love, quiver-form wall lights were popular with bronziers from the late Louis XVI period until the Empire. The present wall lights were made after a model executed by André-Antoine Ravrio (1759-1814) for the dining room at Petit Trianon in 1805, and transferred to Fontainebleau on July 11 the same year for the dining room of Empress Josephine (see Jean-Pierre Samoyault, Pendules et bronze d'ameublement entrés sous le premier Empire, Paris, 1989, p.129, fig. 95).
