Footnotes

  • This type of jardinière, known as an athénienne, became very popular during the end of the Louis XVI period with the advent of the gout étrusque, spurred by the publication of engravings after excavations at Herculaneum and Pompeii. It would become a de rigeur element in bedchambers during the Empire period, popularized by the designs of Percier and Fontaine.

    The satyr mask handles recall a girandole aux béliers supplied by Daguerre circa 1785, possibly modeled by Remond (Pierre Verlet, Les Bronzes dorés français du XVIIIe siècle, Picard, 1999, p. 317).
