Item # 110JPO22M
A finely cast 19th century pair of Louis XVI style candlesticks executed in bronze with a brilliant ormolu surface, both are beautifully chiseled and chased. The separately cast drip-catch can be removed from the candle-well for cleaning, this cast with an attractive gadrooned edge that projects over the multiple layers of acanthus and various foliage decorating the plinth-raised candle-well. A series of berries and leaves surround the top of the fluted and tapered baluster over a footer draped with foliage over rocaille flutes.
Measurements: 9 5/8" H x 4 3/4" base diameter
Very fine original condition. Tarnish and oxidization to the gilding as expected.
