Description

This lovely, gilded bronze candlestick was hand-chiseled in France in the 1700’s. An undulating column rises from the center of an octagonal base that has been engraved with floral and foliate motifs along all three levels of the stepped molding. The sides of the column shaft have been adorned in an alternating fashion of a foliate vine next to a lozenge pattern incised with central roundels. Other motifs include additional roundels near the neck and repeating waves along the protruding knobs of the column. The bobeche resembles a circular and slightly parted leaf (akin to a lily pad) and the inner rim has been embellished by repeating trefoils bordered by a solid line.

The candlestick is high quality French example from the 1700’s, as evidenced by its intricate chiseled decor, threaded construction, and elegant form. A perfect accessory for a mantel or small table, the candlestick could also be wired into a small desk lamp.

CONDITION: Good antique condition, with minor rubs and buildup. Light oxidation to the interior of the bobeche.
