Trudon's Bust collection celebrates the most iconic and influential historical figures of the French Revolution. This object is an idealized portrait 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-de-lis and a row of pearls.
WHY WE LOVE IT
As one of the most famous and controversial women in French History, Marie-Antoinette was the object of many artistic representations. This unscented, decorative candle is adorned with a wick, paying tribute to the primary function of a candle, however designed to be displayed as an art collection, establishing its prestige as a statement piece to any study or home office.
