- Curator's comments
- The pair of busts are identified as Prince Louis Charles de Bourbon and Princess Marie Zephirine de Bourbon (1923,0314.57), and were originally modelled in 1753-55 by Johann Joachim Kaendler. Prince Louis Charles de Bourbon (1751-1761) and Princess Marie Zépherine de Bourbon (1750-1755) were the children of Louis, Dauphin of France and Maria Josepha of Saxony. Sadly, both children died young.
