Pair Of Bronze French Gothic Style Candlesticks 19th Century
SPLENDID PAIR OF FRENCH GOTHIC STYLE CANDLESTICKS
A beautiful pair of 19th century gilt bronze candlesticks
Probably French in manufacture
Design style is a cross between Gothic and Rococo
The crowned top makes them look like the
King and Queen from a chess set
They are high quality items which is shown by the piercing of the
metalwork from top to base and the fine detailing in the casting
which I hope I have shown sufficiently in the close-up photos.
Condition is excellent – no damage or repairs
Obviously being at least 150 years old the original
Gilt finish shows signs of use and wear as would be
expected but it is not excessive and the subsequent
patina has an almost buttery look to it.
Hard to describe or show in photos but they are
extremely tactile and heavy too of course.
They stand 31.5cm tall (just over 12 inches)
and are 15.3cm wide (6 inches) across the base
They weigh approximately 10kg for the two
