Faun and Bacchante
Striking pair of candelabra in chiselled, patinated and gilded bronze in Louis XVI style influenced by a model made by Claude Michel Clodion representing Silene and Bacchante. Each figure single-handedly carries a cornucopia with eight candles, decorated with leaves, vine branches and the head of an eagle. The figures rest on a cylindrical base in red porphyry marble, which is decorated with a frieze of heart lines and acanthus leaves.
This pair of candelabra from the Napoleon III period imitated a model created around 1785 by the bronze worker François Rémond influenced by the sculptor Claude Michel Clodion.
