A pair of chenets of this model, perhaps the first to be made and described as being decorated with ornements arabesques d'o sort un enfant qui se chauffe, was purchased in 1786 by Jean Haur from the founder Turpin l'entr du Fbg. S.-Antoine. They were gilded by Claude Galle and placed in the Grand Cabinet of the Salon des Nobles de la Reine at Versailles. In all likelihood, the sculptor Haur was probably the designer of this model and supervised the work for the Royal pair.
Other examples of this model, with some variations, are in the Muse Nissim de Camondo, Paris (catalogue, no. 373, illustrated p. 72 in the Petit Bureau) and in the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles (anonymous loan).
