pair of andirons Louis XVI period

This pair of andirons in chiseled and gilded bronze features two little cupids sitting on a drape and blowing into a trunk, surrounded by two pine cones.
The base of the sprung andirons has an ornamentation of gadroons, pearls, rosettes and vine garlands.
Two fluted feet and a journaled central foot support the assembly.
The theme treated in this pair of andirons, of great finesse of execution, testifies to the fertile imagination of the bronziers who frequently placed children or loves on furniture, clocks, candelabra, candlesticks or andirons, thus giving a feeling of lightness and softness in their works. There is a model attributed to Étienne Martincourt, very close to this pair of andirons in the collections of the Palace of Versailles.
