A Magnificent Pair Of Bronze Doré Girandoles

um 1900

The Can­de­labras are with a mould­ed, foli­ate and with blos­som gar­lands embell­ished base and stem, which merges into a twist­ed Acan­thus branch, issu­ing four scrolling Acan­thus dec­o­rat­ed arms ter­mi­nat­ing in foli­ate drip pans and noz­zles. The lit­tle ampho­ra on top of the cen­ter stem is remov­able and makes place for anoth­er, fith candle. 

This beau­ti­ful pair is based on a design draft of Juste Aurèle Meis­sonier, Paris 17301740. You can find a sim­i­lar mod­el in the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Muse­um and in The Wal­lace Collection.
