A pair of late 18th century gilt metal and scarlet tole peinte wall lights (lampes a quinquet) attributed to Manufacture Deharme.
Paris circa 1795-1805.
Each modelled as a classical term, with a bust of Diana. The tapering body decorated with music trophy with glass drip-basin beneath, with detachable metal and paper shade.
These Egyptian herm wall-lights in the antique manner are closely related to a design from the workshops of Deharme, now in the Bibliothèque Marmottan, Paris (illustrated in N. de Reynies, Le Mobilier Domestique, Paris, 1987, vol. II, p. 731, fig. 2712).
Manufacture Deharme established in Paris in 1792, was the most important varnished tole factory (varnished sheet metal) in Paris in the last years of the 18th century and at the beginning of the 19th century, not olny for its activity but also for the high quality of its production.
