PAIR OF LARGE FLAMBEAUX in finely chased... - Lot 144 - Pousse-Cornet
PAIR OF LARGE FLAMBEAUX in finely chased and gilded bronze; the bobèches with brettés; the binnets with twisted canals and oves supported by shafts with rosettes and heads of satyrs and terms of young women supporting garlands of flowers; circular bases with shoulders dressed with acanthus alternating with florets and fleurons; the borders with canals. Based on a model by François Rémond, inspired by a design by Jean-Démosthène Dugourc. First half of the 19th century. H: 40.5 cm, D.16.5 cm. Small deformations to the base and some wear to the gilding. Mounted as a lamp but not pierced H.70.5 cm with silk shades. The bases and binnacles vary, as do the pairs of torches in the Wallace Collection (London) and Pillnitz Castle, near Dresden. Bibliography: - H. Ottomeyer and P.
