Today we are delighted to offer for sale a fabulous pair of antique French Louis XV silverplated candlesticks!
These lavish and ornate candlesticks are finely crafted and detailed. The level of quality and craftsmanship leads us to believe these 19th century candlesticks were manufactured by the luxury French silversmith Christofle or one of their contemporaries or offshoots. Each candlestick is crafted of heavy cast brass/bronze which is finely sculpted, chased, and heavily silver plated. The pieces feature an ornate rococo Louis XV style with lots of whirls and whorls accented with floral decorations.
Each candelabra is silverplated for a regal finish. The pieces are un-marked but with quality of this caliber they were no doubt retailed in a luxury decorative arts shop in France like the famous L’Escalier de Cristal.
The set of candelabra presents beautifully and is in very good antique condition, with minor wear, tarnish and patina commensurate with age. There is very minor loss to plating. Candles not included.
Dimensions: 6-3/4″ in height, 4-1/2″ in diameter (base), 8″ in length
