After Feuchère, Pierre-François (French, 1737-1823)
The Neoclassical style wall lights in this pair are after a famous model by Pierre-François Feuchère, one of the leading producers active during the reign of Louis XVI.
This fine pair of three-light wall lights is crafted from finely wrought ormolu. The wall lights are after a model by Pierre-François Feuchère, who ran one of the largest and more esteemed workshops for the production of ormolu pieces during the late 18th and early 19th Century. Feuchère’s products were especially popular during the last decade of the reign of Louis XVI, and his work—particularly his candelabra and wall lights—were in high demand. Feuchère’s pieces served as popular models for later 19th Century producers, as the current pair demonstrates.
Each wall light features a gadrooned and shankered central stem cast to resemble a quiver of arrows, with a beaded floriate rosette and ribbon-tied cresting above and a pinecone drop finial below. Three branches issue from the central stem of each wall light, each scrolled branch reeded and cast with acanthus leaf motifs. Each branch terminates in a baluster form nozzle with a beaded drip pan below, and all three branches are united by draped floral festoon garlands, all intricately cast and finished.
