A fine pair of French Empire bronze and ormolu candlesticks in the Retour d'Egypte style; caryatid stems with reeded bronze columns surmounted by three Egyptian styled female heads, their feet on circular ormolu bases with two bands of a palmette detail. The design for these wonderful candlesticks is attributed to Charles Percier. It is further recorded that a set was supplied to the Palace of Fontainebleau by Claude Galle (1757-1815) in 1804.
