Pair of Louis-Philippe Bronze and Ormolu Candelabra, c. 1840

Pair of bronze and ormolu (bronze dor-) 4-light candlesticks, each with gold floral bobeches and leafy arms raised on three scrolling branches; the triangular base raised on dor- feet.

These unusual candelabra are well cast and finished- the quality usually seen in the earlier Empire and Charles X periods. But the naturalistic, organic forms place them in the 1840 time-frame. Note the beautiful anthemions between the shell feet- vestiges of the earlier neoclassical period.

France c. 1840
20" tall x 6" wide
