Pair of wall lights for blowing children called Zephyrs

Large pair of sconces in chased and gilded bronze with two lively arms of lights, arranged on either side of the central shaft carved with blowers. The barrel is decorated with acanthus leaves, shells, scrolls and flowers.

A pair is kept at Charlottenburg Palace in Berlin
Another reproduced in H. Ottomeyer, P.Pröschel, Vergoldete Bronzen, 1986, t.1, p.67

The decorative accessories of the decoration, in particular the bronze objects take their rise under Louis XIV and take their full development at the time of the Regency. Chandeliers, sconces and andirons are essential in refined furnishings.
The role of the fireplace is decisive in a room, all the more so as the use of mirrors becomes systematic, mirrors to which are added sconces attached just next to or directly on the frame.
The models are constantly diversifying, with one arm, two or three branches, the supports take on more and more animated forms adorned with putti, female figures, or gods of Olympus.
