A really beautiful porcelain candelabra! It is marked with a very indefinite blue hunting horn, the mark for Chantilly. However, its size, lovely clear white glaze, and style leads me to believe it was made by Sampson, of Paris. It has a woman, seated, and holding a small boy holding a tree to the the top of the stick. The candelabra top can removed. It consists of three branches covered by flowers and vines and the candleholders have petals. The bottom of the candelabra has four sections painted with different fruit.
Please see all my pictures. The colors are lovely and the modeling is good. It looks very like a Meissen piece. The dimensions are: 17-1/2" tall, 8" wide. It is in near perfect condition with only one back corner nicked and one of the three candle holders slightly wobbly. This is very good condition realizing it age (19th C.)
