Lot Essay

These candelabra are virtually identical to a pair supplied to St. Cloud circa 1805 which appear on an inventory of 1807, now in the Palais Legion d'Honneur, Paris. Another pair of this model is at Schloss Coburg (see H. Ottomeyer and P. Pröschel, Vergoldete Bronzen, 1986, fig. 5.2.15, p. 334).
