This fine pair of ormolu candelabra is by Auguste Nicholas Cain, one of the leading animalier sculptors active in France during the 19th Century.
Each candelabrum features a long, slender stem raised by a tripod base, with each of the three legs naturalistically modelled and terminating in a claw foot. Each candelabrum supports the springing of six scrolled light branches, each branch draped with garlands of foliage. The ormolu throughout is superbly modelled with leaves, acorns, and hunting trophies such as game birds. Each culminates in an elaborate finial comprised of a pair of birds.
Each candelabrum is signed ‘Cain’ and monogrammed ‘AC’ to the stem.
