About

Pair of French Louis XVI style gilt and patinated bronze chenets or andirons featuring a reclining lion resting on a base with a flame, and ornamented with a fringed drapery, tassels, pearl beading, rosettes and other neoclassical details. Each chant is mounted on four tapered, fluted legs. The pair of chenets were created after a model designed by Louis-Simon Boizot and made by Pierre-Philippe Thomire in 1786 under the direction of Jean Hauré for the Salon des Jeux of Queen Marie-Antoinette at Versailles.
