After the model by Clodion
Claude Michel (known as Clodion), French, 1738-1814
Each modelled as a faun and faunesse standing on veined green marble pedestals, raising a ten-light candelabra with cut-glass droplets.
Total height 234cm, candelabra height 150cm, width 55cm; the pedestal tops 36cm square
The model created by Clodion was created for a pair of eight-light candelabra in 1780 that are today in the Louvre, some similarities with a pair of candelabra by François Rémond for Napoleon at the chateau de Fontainebleau.
