C1870 Pair French Ormolu Chenet


This fine pair of Louis XVI style gilt bronze chenet or firedogs is Napoleon III, Second Empire period. The hand finishing and gilding separates these from the usual cast brass ones of the 20th century. 38 cm tall, 31 cm wide and 16 cm deep including the rear iron support strut. Apart from their original use at the fireplace, these gilt bronze sculptures are decorative, and can also be transformed into electric lamps, a process we have had done before.
