Catalogue Note

This suite of four candelabra raises the drawing realised by Charles Percier in 1802 for the boudoir of Joséphine Bonaparte in Saint-Cloud. This kind of Renommée model, standing on one foot, on a sphere has been used by many bronziers at the beginning of 19th century. We find this model with variants in the current residence of the ambassador of England in Paris and in several public collections. An identical model is kept at the villa Borghese in Rome.
