B819 - SOLD
This is a superb pair of antique French gilded church candlesticks dating from the 1800's. They would have stood on the church altar but would now make a stylish addition to a château chic interior.
Each candlestick stands on a decorative triangular base with winged lion's feet. Each of the sides of the base is intricately decorated with a religious image, including the Madonna and the double flaming sacred heart.
The column of each candlestick is of the classic Empire style and the bobeche are simple with clean lines.
The candlesticks are in good sturdy condition. The top of one of the candlesticks is a little shorter than the other, but when the candles are in place and the sticks placed apart this is not noticeable.
The gilding on the candlesticks has mellowed over the years and acquired a little verdigris in places. This is a fabulous effect that could not be replicated.
The taller of the candlesticks is 42 cm high and the other is 1 cm shorter. The sides of the base measure 11.5 cm.
Whether placed on a simple country buffet or a grand enfilade these gorgeous candlesticks will look stunning.
Another fabulous antique French find from La Belle Étoffe!
N.B. The candles are not included to keep the postage to a minimum.
