These candelabra, with Apollo and Diana personified as winged Victory figures, are after a model by Claude Michaelon executed around 1799 (see H. Ottomeyer, P. Pröschel, Vergoldete Bronzen, Munich, 1986, vol. I, p. 390, ill. 5.17.3). However, they are also quite similar to an 1802 design by Percier for the furnishing of the boudoir of Josephine Bonaparte at the Château de Saint-Cloud (op.cit. vol. I, p. 328, ill. 5.2.1).
A similar pair with each figure holding a candelabra is in the collection of Fontainebleau, while a further pair was in the collection of the Würzburger Residenz and auctioned from the Demidoff Collection, AK San Donato, Florence, March 1880, lot 940. A related pair holding a circle of five lights was sold Christie's, New York 19-20 October 2011, lot 279 ($74,500).
