PAIR OF FLOOR CANDLESTICKS
Carved and gilt wood, base painted to resemble marble.
These large five-armed candlesticks feature a vertical body enriched by phytomorphic elements that terminate in a stylized palmette motif from which the arms supporting the five bobeches depart. Large leafy scrolls on the sides develop mirror-wise, and are concluded by rosette motifs.
