This model incorporating a lion-bodied eagle which was sacred to Apollo, was first introduced as guardian firedog "chenets" after the French antique manner at the connoisseur Thomas Hope's Duchess Street mansion at the beginning of the 19th century (T. Hope, Household Furniture and Interior Decoration, London, 1807, pl. LVIII).

These fire dogs, and the following lot, are likely to have been commissioned by William, 4th Earl Fitzwilliam (d. 1833) for the Pillared Hall fireplaces at Wentworth Woodhouse, Yorkshire, as part of the enlargement and redecoration undertaken circa 1820.
