Extremely similar putto reliefs, although painted, featured on the jewel-cabinet almost certainly commissioned by William Beckford whilst in Paris in 1788-93 (anonymous sale, Sotheby's Monaco,14th June 1997, lot 137). This latter casket, executed by Adam Weisweiler, was ornamented with painted panels by le citoyen Sauvage (Piet-Joseph Sauvage 1733-1808), and the latter may well have provided the source for the mounts on the present candelabra.
