This is the best & Biggest pair of French Figural Candelabra we have owned !! The size of each is approx. 35"tall x 18"diameter. Cast in France CA.1860-1870, there is only a number stamped in one figural base: "1169".
The bronze figures have a dark chocolate brown Patina, the bases in white marble with elaborate mounts in Bronze dore, and the huge Candelabra tops in Bronze Dore'. Both Candelabra are in excellent condition.
This massive pair features 2 fully dimensional bronze figures holding up the "baskets of flowers"...the male figure being "Pan with his Pipes", with his horns just peeking out below the basket... along with his female Muse and her tambourine,and her Wine Pitcher by her left foot. The detail and refinement of the features and clothing are fantastic. The Classical bronze figures are a design after "Clodion".
Each is mounted on a solid white Marble Base, with elaborate dore' bronze mounts.
(The photographs were taken with and without flash, and the flash photography has put more of a copper tone to the figures...they are a dark chocolate brown original patina...I have one photo without flash, with the white background)
A wonderful pair of Antique Candelabra with very fine detail...the best for your collection.....and very impressing for your next grand Dinner Party!!
(The approx. weight is 175 pounds, and possibly four cartons are needed if they are shipped dismantled..one each for the tops and one each for the bases..or each candelabra can be crated whole...I would have to calculate precisely the cost of packing and shipping.)
