Rare series of 4 wall lights with two lights in finely chiseled gilt bronze, representing two Cupids or cherubim playing two trumpets, as well as arabesques and vegetable scrolls of acanthus leaves and thyrsus windings, according to the model by Jean Hauré * (1787) made for the Château de Saint-Cloud, from the 19th century.

These wall lights are in good condition and are of high quality. They are very decorative, very beautiful model. Numbered on the back. They have been electrified, to be reviewed.

A note: trace of welding on a wall lamp, slight soiling on the gilding, wear of time, see photos.

* This pair of sconces is made after the important 18th century model sculpted by the master-founder Jean Hauré, cast by Forestier and continued by Pierre-Philippe Thomire (1751-1843) for the castle of Saint Cloud. In their book "Vergoldete Bronzen", Hans Ottomeyer and Peter Pröschel note that this model of wall lamp can be attributed to Jean Hauré who delivered almost identical works to the Garde-Meuble de la Couronne in 1787. An almost identical pair of wall lamps is in the Jones collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Another series of four sconces is in the Wrightsman collection of the Metropolitan Museum in New York.
Jean Hauré was a member of the Academy of Saint-Luc and became a foundry master manufacturing furniture and works of art in gilded bronze for the Garde-Meuble de la Couronne from 1785 to 1788. He is also registered as providing a set of gilt bronze sconces for Marie-Antoinette's card room in Compiègne, which were cast by Forestier and continued by Thomire. As an entrepreneur, Hauré also supplied other furniture bronzes for royal palaces such as a game of chenet which was delivered to the Louis XVI Game Room in Fontainebleau in 1786.
