This stunning and highly decorative Rococo style gilt chamberstick was produced in France and dates to the 19th century, circa 1880. This small candlestick or candle holder is constructed from a copper like metal alloy and is covered in rich buttery gilding with the most wonderful natural patina. This French gem is sublimely decorative with its typical Rococo motifs of shells, acanthus leaves and C scrolls. We particularly like the shell thumb rest .
Measuring: Width 4 inch (10 cm) by height 3.5 inch (9 cm). Depth 3 2/8 inch (8 cm).
Condition: There is some surface wear to be expected with its vast age and usage, the original attached candle snuffer that was secured in the thumb rest is missing.
A gorgeous antique that is perfectly functional and that makes a highly decorative addition to your boudoir.
