Review

Pair of Louis XIV-Louis XV style-candlesticks with chamfered angles. The stem of these ormolu Regency-style lights is engraved with foliage, arabesques, antique vases and masks on a matting background. The stem presents several profiles in relief, imitating cameo jewelry. They rest on an octogonal base which is richly decorated with interlaced motifs and foliage. Beautiful alternation of mate and bright areas.


Circa :1850
Dim: W: 4,9 in - D: 4,9in - H: 9,8in.
Dim: L:12,5cm, P:12,5cm, H:25cm.


Condition Report

In overall good condition, with very minimal spotting and rubbing. Can be wired for electricity (upon request).


Literature

At the end of Louis XIV’s reign, a lightening of the shapes, a greater variation in the decor, an emphasis of the game of relief and a multiplication of interlaced motifs can be noticed. Progressively the classicism rigor and a kind of monumentality are replaced by an intense research of variation in the detail. This pair of Napoleon III candlesticks reproduces the stylistic characteristics of the end of Louis XIV’s reign and of the Regence period.
