Colorful French Longwy turquoise faience double light candelabra mounted on decorative bronze stand. The Faïenceries et Émaux de Longwy (Longy pottery and enamels) was founded in 1798 in Lorraine, France near the Belgian and Luxembourg border. Circa 1870, in response to the French taste for the Oriental, Longwy hired an Italian, Amédée de Carenza, who had managed the ceramic production for the Emperor of Japan. A cloisonne specialist, de Carenza translated the metal technique into pottery and it became the town's specialty. It is decorated in white, blue, green, and red on a turquoise ground. In very good used condition as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.
Measurements: 11" total height from base to top finial; 4 3/4" square base approximately.
