Chandelier Carquois

This chandelier is the variation of the Carquois model, very famous from the 18th century, probably by Louis François Feuchère.
As a result of the success of the original model, the quiver’s motif became a very popular ornamentation. We find him at the Château de Compiègne (Living-room of games ‘ Queen, Appartement du roi de Rome) but also at the Château de Fontainebleau, or on a chandelier dating from 1785 to the Petit Trianon, and the greatest names (Pierre Gouthière, Pierre-Philippe Thomire, Simon Louis Boizot, etc.) made declinations.
Surmounted by a detailed quiver, similar to that of Pierre Gouthière from 1781 and preserved in the Louvre Museum, six arms of light each carry five candles.
The furthest candle of each arm is placed on a vegetable garland supporting a cup and a candle sleeve shaped like a flower button. The other four candles are supported by stems of foliage whose flowered ends conceal a candle sleeve.
Bronze ribbons like François Rémond’s 1786 arms of light from Versailles Castle connect the arms to the central quiver. Two pompoms come to complete the set.
