A Fine Louis XVI Style Gilt-Bronze Twenty-Four Light, Two-Tier, Cherub Chandelier, in the Manner of Pierre Gouthière.

This fine chandelier has an acanthus cast corona above a baluster stem with four trumpet playing putti; their acanthus wrapped lower sections extending to form eight scrolling candle arms. Below is a lower tier issuing a further sixteen acanthus wrapped candle arms, each terminating in leaf cast drip trays and circular nozzles.

The design for the chandelier is an adaptation of the model designed by Pierre Gouthière for Le Cabinet Doré in Marie-Antoinette's private apartments at the Palace of Versailles. A design for the chandelier by Gouthière survives in the collections of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs.
Ottomeyer, Hans & Pröschel, Peter. Vergoldete Bronzen, Vol. I, Klinkhardt & Biermann, (Munich), 1986; p. 238, figs. 4.4.1. and 4.4.2.
