Lustre en bronze ciselé et doré attribué à Duverger - Epoque Empire

Chandelier with nine sconces in chiseled and gilded bronze.
The central body of the chandelier is made up of a gilded bronze amphora ending in a very large seed covered with acanthus leaves.
On this amphora, the arms of light escape through three heads of laureate women.
Each arm comes out of two successive acanthus leaves, and from the first leaf escapes a winding finished in its center by a stylized four-leaf. The arms are connected to each other by threads of crystals
On the central rod in the upper part start two branch pavilions, windings of gilded bronze and crystal pendants

Period around 1805

Attributed to Duverger


Nicolas-Philippe DUVERGER (died in 1831)
The Duverger factory is a factory of lamps, chandeliers in gilded bronze, decorated with crystals and works in varnished sheet metal, rue Neuve des Petits Champs n°458
This manufacture delivers among others the castle of Fontainebleau between 1805 and 1811
In 1811, he was appointed as "supplier and general contractor for the lighting of the palaces of HM the Emperor and King.


A chandelier with the same characteristics, in particular at the level of the arms, was delivered for the Empress' salon in Fontainebleau in November 1804.
Coming from the same factory, we know of a gilded bronze sconce kept at the Château de Fontainebleau
