Marie Antoinette Ivory Wax Bust

Marie Antoinette Ivory Wax Bust

SKU: 25971

This little-known copy of Marie-Antoinette of Austria is attributed to one of the Brachard brothers, either the eldest, Jean-Charles-Nicolas or the youngest, Jean-Nicolas-Alexandre, who both worked at the Manufacture de Sevres between 1782 and 1827. This object is an idealized sculpture of the queen instead of the evocation of a sovereign at the height of her power.
The head is slightly turned to the right; the shoulders are covered with a swath of fabric for a natural effect; she is wearing a crown decorated with a fleur-delis and a row of pearls.

Enchanting wax sculptures in the memory of men, women and children who have marked our history. Cire Trudon has brought back to life the lovely tradition of wax sculptures to be collected rather than consumed.

The many centuries-long experiences of the Trudon company makes them wax producers with unrivaled know-how. Skillful and demanding, Trudon draws all its talent from its wax producers without neglecting innovation for perfecting its waxes.

Trudon keeps a little secret when it comes to manufacturing: candle wax made with the highest quality of natural wax produced from rice, soya and copra (coconut kernel), forming a unique mixture, to be blended with perfume for perfect candles that go on burning.

The candle wicks are made from pure cotton. The candles do not contain any substances on the Greenpeace OSPAR list. No heavy metals or pesticides are involved in their manufacturing and they are entirely biodegradable.
