  • Description
    A pair of large French ormolu and patinated bronze candelabra
    French, c.1870
    Height 98cm, width 31cm, depth 31cm
    This impressive pair of candelabra features two Classically modelled maidens, holding above their head an extravagant fruit-filled golden array, which each issue a trio of candle-branches with corolla nozzles, scrolled foliage and cockerel head terminals. The central of each splendid cornucopia is a serpent-entwined fluted shaft, topped with a pine-cone finial, and each maiden, left in the underlying bronze in delightful contrast with their golden loads, stands upon a small marble pedestal. This pair is taken from an earlier model by Rémond, and one of the original pair has been displayed at the Musée du Louvre  (OA 5246-5247), after being transferred from the Mobilier National in 1901, previously furnishing the Château de Pau.
    Artist/Maker: (after) Francois Remond
