Pair of Empire French candlesticks with Romans
Pair of gilt bronze Empire French candlesticks
Beautiful pair of Empire French candlesticks in gilt bronze (ormolu). These Empire candlesticks have the shape of a Roman man and a woman, draped in a toga. The man and woman each carry an amphora. An arm of light in the shape of a natural rose branch grows from the amphora. The pedestal column has decorations of masks and a frieze of palmettes.
Pair of Empire French candlesticks of exceptional quality with a beautiful original gilding of fine gold in matt and shiny. They have lively sculpture finely hand chiseled details. Overall the pair is in a very good condition with original gilding. Some signs of wear are showing in the base part, commensurate with their age.
Beautiful set, very decorative in any luxury home as a fireplace garnish, on a console, beside a Empire clock or on a dining table.
