A similar pair of candelabra are kept in the Mobilier National (GML 11204 and 11205) and they are illustrated in M-F. Dupuy-Baylet, l'Heure, le Feu, la Lumière, Dijon, 2010, p. 67. They have marks of the valuation made in the Palais de l'Elysée in 1817.
Illustration is accurate. Attractive model. The figure needs to be fixed as looses slightly. The gilded mounts quite dirty with stains and dust. Will benefit a light cleaning.
