The pair of andirons we present was most probably gilded by Jean Baptiste Blerzy. Master gilder in 1760, his business card, preserved in the Carnavalet museum, indicates that he was a master gilder and silversmith "at the present time on rue de la Verrerie". He was, indeed, probably the owner of the model. We know this because an almost identical pair signed by him was sold in 2018 and belonged to the Malatier collection. It is not only in this famous collection that we find the model but also in the Museum of Decorative Arts, the Castle of Fontainebleau and the National Furniture. Thus, the pair of andirons with the cassolette is indeed a model of high quality.
