Musée National du Château de Fontainebleau, catalogue des collections de mobilier, Paris, 1989, p.155, no.132, illustrates a pair of candelabra in Fontainebleau, from the Consulat period, with identical figures supporting basket on their heads of differing design and according to Baulez, the caryatides were created for Daguerre by the fondeur Rémond in around 1785.

This model was created by François Rémond around 1785 for the Duc de Penthièvre and had the same caryatid figures in patinated bronze. The marchand-mercier, Daguerre, received various examples of this model with variations. Due to the success of this model, Rémond reproduced this during the Consulat, adapting it to suit the taste of the day. See also Christian Baulez, Le Luminaire de la Princesse Kinsky, in L' Estampille-L'Objet d' Art, May 1991, n. 247, pp. 84-99, for a clock by Rémond, incorporating the same female figures in drapery. A similar pair can be seen in the Partridge catalogue Recent Acquisitions 1998, p. 134.
