A pair of ormolu bronze Empire candle sticks

These fine ormolu Empire candlesticks are beautifully decorated with hunting scenes on the base and under the candle holder, which is rare.
 
These candlesticks are possibly attributed to Pierre-Philippe Thomire, 1751-1843 of the firm Thomire-Duterme & Cie, supplier to the imperial palaces.
 
France, Empire, 1805-1810.
