A fine early 19th century Russian gilt bronze and cut glass globe chandelier, after designs by Alexandre Guérin, the upper corona with a berried and acanthus finial framed with bold cast anthemion, with elaborate chain inset with cast palmettes, supporting a lobed and diamond cut glass orb in two sections, surrounded by a band of laurel leaves with alternating swans and eagle-headed candle holders complete with nozzles and drip-pans, at the centre a gilt bronze urn with tooled decoration, the whole terminating in a large pinecone finial.

This chandelier derives from a design executed by Alexandre Guérin for a chandelier in the Alexandrinsky Theatre in 1828 (ill. in I. Sychev, The Russian Chandeliers, St. Petersburg, 2003, p. 174). The sophisticated Empire style is undoubtedly inspired by the work of Pierre-Philippe Thomire. The spherical body, urn-shaped tooled finial and distinctive eagle-headed scrolled branches relate this chandelier to the oeuvre of this particular bronzier, who worked in St. Petersburg from 1810 to 1848. (Discussed in I. Sychev, Russian Bronze, Moscow, 2003, p. 111).
