Mesdames Marcelle, Violette Bichon and Delacour as they appeared in La Pendule de Falconet, one of the Tableaux Vivants presented in Le Carnet du Diable, a revue produced at the Théâtre des Variétés, Paris, in October 1900. This tableaux was based upon the white marble and gilt bronze group, Pendule des Trois grâces of circa 1770, attributed to Étienne-Maurice Falconet, which was bequeathed by the comte Isaac de Camondo to the musée du Louvre in 1911.

‘A la reprise du CARNET DU DIABLE, aux Variétés (octobre 1900), les auteurs ajoutèrent le vif attrait de tableaux vivants qui terminent la soirée donnée par le rasta Rodrigo; ces figurantes représentaient, entre autres sujects croustilleux, la Pendule de Falconet, l’Art nouveau Sèvres, le Déjeuner du Shah, et le Métropolitain, le comble du nu.’
(L. Nass and G.-J. Witkowski, Le Nu au Théâtre depuis l’Antiquité, Paris, 1914, p. 187)
