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
