Set of eight six-light gilt-bronze candelabra; each in the form of a blue enamelled vase crowned by a flaming torch from which springs the arms of two lights. Four other lights terminate in eagle heads hung with chains. Vase supported on three rods terminating in hooves. Central rod with spiral around it.
François Rémond was one of the leading bronze-founders of late eighteenth-century France; he collaborated with many makers and dealers during the course of his career, including Dominique Daguerre, the Paris dealer-decorator whom the Prince charged with the furnishing of Carlton House. These candelabra were probably designed by Daguerre.
