Catalogue Note

These wall lights evoke two distinct stylistic currents, that of the French Regency with the stem on which is affixed a woman draped in Antiquity, for she is treated in a more Louis XVI manner. The joinings, the crafting of the chasing, and the gilding advocate a production from the late 18th century, whereas the model had traditionally been presented as from the Régence era.
