PAIR OF LOUIS XVI ORMOLU CANDLESTICKS
19th century | each marked respectively to the underside "H" & "HH"; both marked "17130"
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
