Pair of Napoleon III Period French Ormolu Bronze and Sevres Porcelain Candelabra


1 In stock



France Ca 1860

Exceptional and magnificent pair of finely chased ormolu gilded bronze candelabras with five lights above spiraled urns. The base is a tripod mounted around a Sevres famous "celestial blue" porcelain vase adorned by a polychromatic flower bouquet inside an oval gold leafed register in each interval between the feet. When the candles are not lighted the top arm support an ormolu bronze "candle extinguisher" in the shape of a flowering basket that would be used to stop the light on all the candles. Fabulous and very rare decor and useful detail.

Good. There is a crack in the porcelain on one candelabra where the paint is missing. Detail in listed photo. Wear consistent with age and use. Minor structural damages.
