Pair Longwy Faience Pottery Bronze Candlesticks Crystal Prisms - c. 19th/20th Century, France

Lovely pair of tall French Longwy faience pottery insert and bronze candlesticks with hanging crystal prisms and square stone base. The faiencierie de Longwy was founded in a former Carmelite convent purchased in 1798 by Pierre-Joseph Boch, Charles Regnier and Nicolas Soldez. Longwy's patterns were inspired by the then fashionable, free form oriental designs. Each color was outlined in black resembling the effect of wire in cloisonne. One of Longwy's first clients was Napoleon I, who ordered a large dinnerware set of which a tureen still survives and is on display at the Longwy Municipal Museum. In very good used condition with minor losses, scratches and imperfections as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.

Measurements: 13 1/4" high by 10 1/8" square base approximately.
