Fabulous & rare antique French Napoleon III or Victorian era candle holder or chamberstick with green opaline glass base plate, rich gilt ormolu framework & leaf accented finger ring handle and three shimmering mother of pearl half shells supporting the candle fixture! Likely a Palais Royal piece, rarely seen with this form and function and what a wonderful addition to a fine assortment of old French Palais Royal opaline “egg” caskets, etc. Exceptional visually and the condition of the piece is really superb. Look and enjoy but don’t miss it, this one is surely going quick.
Very good to excellent condition. I see no chips, cracks or flaws to the opaline glass or any of the three mother of pearl inserts. A slight bend or two to the ormolu but all intact and in a recently polished rich gold. See pictures for measurements.
