SUPERB PAIR OF DORÉ AND PATINATED BRONZE SEVEN-LIGHT CANDELABRA WITH PUTTO FIGURALS
France, circa 1870-1890
Item # 007LTX30A
An incredibly fine pair of seven-light doré and patinated bronze candelabra, both feature putto figurals with seated positions opposing one another as they cradle in their arms the cornucopia from which the lighted branches spring. The casting quality is very fine throughout, particularly the figures, both of whom feature crisp chiseling and texturing to the hair, perfectly smooth finished surfaces throughout, fine detailing to the eyes and fingernails and overall with features powerful and determined. They rest over a fluted base in the Louis XVI taste and the branches of lights are ornamented with intricate displays of foliage.

Condition Report: Previously electrified with hole for cord to reverse of cornucopia and the highest candle-well. Oxidization and discoloration to gilding. Minor handling wear to patina. Tapped and filled holes to reverse of figurals and base.
