A pair of Empire Period, ormolu and patinated bronze candelabra

Impressive pair of candelabra with five lights in gilded and patinated bronze from the Empire period. Resting on a square base, decorated with gilt bronze appliques, depicting a woman draped in the Antique, representing allegorical figures of water and ewers, an "antique" caryatid holds two sconces griffin decorations. A bouquet of three sconces decorated with roosters rests on the head of the caryatid, in its center a snake, pointing towards an eagle, original gilding.

Created by Thomire in 1811, this model represents the Myth of Etana, probably a tribute (or an order) to celebrate the birth of the King of Rome.

An identical pair was delivered in 1811 to the Hôtel Borghèse (property of Pauline Bonaparte / Borghèse) for the Carmélite salon (now renamed the yellow salon).
Currently the British Embassy it still has this pair of candelabra in the yellow salon.
