Rare, stunning, Louis XVI style gilt and patinated bronze six-light chandelier, after the model by François Rémond from the Belle Epoque era. This elegant chandelier is modelled as an amphora-shaped urn with a spiral fluted neck surmounted by a torch finial, and set with three finely modelled female caryatid figures, each holding two scrolling candle arms. An ormolu corona and grape cluster finial embellish the bottom of the piece. The chandelier is hung by three tassel and rope motif chains attached by an acanthus medallion and a large gold ring. A burnished 48" long black and gold chain link and "S" hook are included for adjustable heights. Originally a colza type oil lamp with a reservoir, it has now been wired for electricity.
Dimensions: 33"h x 19.5"diameter
Note: Established in Paris in 1853 and remaining in operation until 1918, the Maison Millet firm specialized in bronze mounts for furniture, developing a reputation for very fine execution. Starting with the Exposition Universelle of 1889 (where they won a gold medal), the firm began making luxury furniture and decorative objects featuring their bronze work, and by the 1890s were well known as an important producer. They were awarded numerous other prizes in Paris and London, including a Grand Prix at the 1900 Paris Exposition, three diplomes d'honneur and four further gold medals. Sometime after 1900 they opened a second office in Nice, and in 1902 moved their Paris offices from 11 rue Jacques-Coeur to 23 Boulevard Beaumarchais. It is known that Francois Linke was a client of Maison Millet. Provenance: An Important Private Collection, Southern California. Originally purchased from Stair Antiques in London.
The ciseleur-doreur François Rémond (1747-1812), was a leading Parisian gilder and bronzier during the second half of the 1700s.
He began his apprenticeship in 1763 with the doreur Pierre-Antoine Vial, and was elected maître on 14 December 1774. He worked principally for the marchand mercier Dominique Daguerre, although he was also employed directly by ébénistes such as David Roentgen and Jean-Henri Riesener and collaborated on some pieces with the bronze caster Pierre Gouthière, helping him on some of his larger projects.
Rémond built up a successful business patronised by members of the French court, counting Marie-Antoinette, the Comte d'Artois, the Duc de Penthièvre and the Comte d'Adhémar amongst his principal patrons.
