Empire chandelier attributed to Nicolas-Philippe Duverger

Chandelier with nine sconces in chiseled and gilded bronze.
The central body of the chandelier is formed by a gilded bronze amphora terminated by a very large seed covered with acanthus leaves.
On this amphora, the sconces escape through three heads of laureate women.
Each arm emerges from two successive acanthus leaves, and from the first leaf escapes a winding terminated in its center by a stylized four leaves. The arms are connected to each other by strings of crystals
Two branching pavilions, gilded bronze windings and crystal pendants leave from the central rod in the upper part.

Period around 1805

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


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