Description
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. 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-delis and a row of pearls. As one of the most famous and controversial women in French History, Marie-Antoinette was the object of many artistic representations. Many valuable pieces disappeared during the French Revolution. Fortunately, some copies have survived the upheavals of time. Well aware of the richness of its history, Maison Trudon has asked the Réunion des Musées Nationaux (the French National Museum Council) to be granted the rights of reproducing in was some jewels from its Molding Workshop catalogue. Trudon introduces today the busts of characters or symbols of the French History, a very precious theme for the company which used to be the Manufacture Royale de Cire.
Cire Trudon
The many centuries-long experience of the Trudon company makes it a wax producer with unrivalled know-how. Skilful 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 vegetal material, forming a unique mixture, to be blended with perfume for perfect candles that go on burning.

Confidentially, this unique wax is essentially made with soya and copra. 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.
