Catalogue Note

This impressive pair of andirons can be compared to models by the bronziers Jean-Louis Prieur and Quentin-Claude Pitoin. A chenet with similar dimensions but slight variations and featuring the same obelisk and vase with flaming finial is illustrated in the book by Hans Ottomeyer and Peter Pröschel, Vergoldete Bronzen, p. 200, fig. 3.14.9.
