For the princely table on grand occasions, multi-light candelabras functioned as the primary source of illumination and suggested a theme of luxury and fine entertainment. Our two matching examples rest on a pedestal with a square base and are elevated by a stand in full relief, enriched with leaves of acanthus, volutes, palmettes, and stylized trefoils. The six arms open like the corolla of a flower to five petals and a central pistil. In current design schemes, candelabras rest on servantes, on the sides of a hearth, and on mirrored consoles. Sculpted and gilded over fire, and entirely original, the two pieces are unmistakable for the purity of line and are certainly attributable to Paris in the early years of the nineteenth century (1804-1815). Pair of candelabras in gilt bronze. France, First Empire. Possible work of the shop of Thomir, the great bronzesmith.

Per la taoola principesca delle grandi occasioni, i candelabri a moite fiamme erano lafonte principale della illuminazione e motivo di lasso e grande rappresentanza. l nostri due esemplari gemelli poggiano su piedistallo a base quadrata e si elevano con uno stelo a tutto tondo, arricchito confoglie d'acanto, volute, palmette e trifogli stilizzati. I sei bracci si aprono, corne la corolla di unfiore a cinquepetali e pistillo centrale. Negli arredamenti attuali i candelabri poggiano sulle servantes, ai lati del camino, sulle consolles con specchio. Cesellati e dorati a fuoco, integri in ogni parte, i due esemplari sono inconfondibili per la purezza della linea e sicuramente databili ai primissirni anni sec. XIX (1804-1815) a Parigi. Coppia di candelabri in bronza dorato. Francia, Primo Impero.
