    These Egyptian herm wall-lights in the antique manner are closely related to a design from the workshops of Deharme, now in the Bibliothéque Marmottan, Paris (illustrated in N. de Reynies, Le Mobilier Domestique, Paris, 1987, vol. II, p. 731, fig. 2712). Blaise-Louis Deharme's produced work in both the antique and the Egyptian taste from his studio in the Rue Martel, Paris.
