French 19th Century Louis XV Style Cherub & Dragons Ormolu & Crystal Chandelier

About

A very fine and Palatial French 19th century Louis XV style figural gilt-bronze and crystal thirty-three light chandelier, attributed to Baccarat, after a model by Jacques Caffieri (French, 1678-1755) with twenty one Candelabra Arms, three gilt-bronze cherubs each holding a wreath and three sets of three-headed Winged Griffins, the central bronze ball in a deep-cobalt-blue enamel with fleur de lys decorations. The candle sleeves are opline glass. Circa: Paris, 1890. Jacques Caffieri (French, 1678-1755) not only produced chandeliers and furniture mounts for Louis XV but also entire gilt-bronze objects. The Cabinet de la Pendule adjoining Louis XV's bedroom at Versailles takes its name from the astronomical clock designed by Claude Simeon Passemant (1702-1769) and made by Dauthiau (w. 1735-1767). Housed in a simple case, it was presented to the king on September 7, 1750, and then provided with a sumptuous gilt-bronze case by Caffieri to the kings order. Height: 87 inches (221 cm). Width: 48 inches (121.9 cm).
