$ 125,000
  • Description
    Illuminating Heritage: An Important "Exhibition" Pair of Ferdinand Barbedienne and Louis Constant Sevin Champleve Enamel and Ormolu Eight-Light Candelabra / Lamps

    In the realm of decorative arts, few pieces boast the prestigious collaboration that defines this important pair of Candelabra. This extraordinary duo stands as a beacon of artistic prowess, a culmination of the visionary craftsmanship of two illustrious names in the 19th-century French decorative arts scene.

    Crafted with precision and artistry, these candelabra bear the hallmark of Sevin's expertise in champlevé enamel—a technique that transforms them into canvases of vibrant colors and intricate patterns. The ormolu, equally intricate and lavish, forms a golden tapestry that complements and elevates the enameling, creating a harmonious visual symphony.

    The "B" monogram on each candelabra, a distinctive signature, adds an extra layer of provenance, underscoring the historical significance of these luminous artifacts. As an "Exhibition" pair, these candelabra were created not just to illuminate spaces but to captivate audiences, embodying the pinnacle of 19th-century French decorative arts.

    In a museum context, these candelabra would undoubtedly take center stage, commanding attention with their historical narrative and artistic grandeur. The eight-light configuration ensures a spectacular luminosity, casting a radiant glow on the legacy of Barbedienne and Sevin.
