Works to be linked

A similar clock made around 1780, now displayed in the Royal palace in Madrid, is reproduced in the reference book Encyclopédie de la pendule française de Pierre Kjellberg, Ed. de l’amateur, p.258 and in La pendule française dans le monde, Tardy, vol. 2, Paris, 1981, p.112.

These candelabra are to be linked to those executed by Pierre-Philippe Thomire and François Rémond around 1785 for the King of Spain Charles IV and the Queen Marie-Louise (entered then the collection of Baron Alphonse de Rothschild, at the
 Ferrières Castle).
