Born in 1766, Giuseppe Boschi was active in Rome in 1783 and awarded the prize from the Saint Luc Academy. Although very renown for his Antiquity scale models, his versions were less expensive than those made by Righetti or Valadier. The architect Charles Tatham greatly appreciated Boschi's craftsmanship with whom he probably collaborated regularly. He commissioned several candlesticks for Carlton House, the Prince of Wales residence.
