PAIR OF CANDELABRA WITH PUTTI
gilt bronze and marble
Fine pair of candelabra in the style of Napoleon III with 6 arms, richly decorated with vegetal motifs and volutes. The
gilded bronze candelabra are supported by two fully sculpted putti: on one side they embrace a cornucopia with arms branching out of it, on the other they hold a vine with leaves.
The stems are richly embellished with finely crafted leaves terminating in ‘bobèches’ resembling carnation buds.
The honed green marble plinth base, held up by circular gilded bronze feet, is decorated in the upper part with mythological scenes on all four sides, while in the lower part, the protruding base is adorned with pearls and phytomorphic motifs in the Neoclassic style.
