Reinhold Fredric Lindroth (1790-1840) flourished in the 1820s and worked for both the Swedish and the Russian courts. The fact that he worked in St Petersburg is all the more pertinent that his work relates closely to that of the celebrated St. Petersburg-based bronzier Andreï Schreiber. A closely related chandelier circa 1810, attributed to Schreiber and comparable in composition to that formerly in the dressing room of Tsar Nicholas I at Anichkov Palace, is in the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow (illustrated in I. Sychev, Russian Bronze, Moscow, 2003, p.95, and I. Sychev, The Russian chandeliers 1760-1830, 2003, p.104, no. 470.
Although pieces attributable to Lindroth are relatively rare on the market, several were sold at auction recently and include two pairs of candelabra sold The Ariane Dandois Collection, Sotheby's, New York, 25 October 2007, lots 594 and 595.
