Two monumental biscuit porcelain and gilt bronze candelabra

$ 100,000
  • Description
    These candelabra are magnificent works of sculpture, as well as lights. They are statement pieces which measure an impressive 1.35m (53 inches) in height. The candelabra will add splendour and opulence to the interior in which they are placed.

    The candelabra are of matching design. They feature bisque (unglazed white) porcelain stems, which hold gilt bronze (ormolu) bouquets of flower-shaped candle-holders. The porcelain stems are beautifully modelled to take the form of classical fluted columns, accompanied by putti figures. Each stem features two putti, one of whom wraps his arms around the column, while the other reaches up to touch its top. The putti are depicted as full-length nude figures whose bodies are partially covered by draped fabrics. They stand on circular bases which are encircled by foliate gilt bronze bands. The candelabra are set on square gilt bronze plinths, their corners decorated with square rosettes.
