The two torches are electrified and mounted as desk lamps. The Flambeaux, Parisian work from the Empire period around 1810 attributable to the master foundry carver Claude Galle (1752-1815) Height: Flambeaux: 26 cm; With lampshade: 54 cm Diameter: 13 cm Claude Galle delivers several models with cut sides topped with female busts and finished with feet for the imperial furniture store. It offers many variations of this flagship model in its production, alternating busts of Diana or Egyptians. In 1813 a very close pair, with the same faces, feet and decoration of palmettes, is inventoried in the library of the Empress at the Elysée Palace.
