Questions about this piece?


This set of candelabra is attributed to Christofle, the renowned silverware manufacturer, and is made in the Rococo style. The candelabra are almost identical, save for the direction that the decorative putti faces. Both stand on three trunk-style feet, which meet in an openwork grapevine design.

The decorative highlight of these pieces is undoubtedly the main stem, which has been carved in the form of a putto that carries a fruit basket atop his head. The two cherubs are cast with impressive artistry, speaking to the skill of the objects’ maker.

The fruit basket effortlessly extends into the six candelabra. The branching, vine-wrapped arms are capped with bell-shaped capitals. Similar openwork designs to the base centre the six arms and each piece is topped by a flower-cluster finial.

The Christofle manufactory is renowned for creating impressive silverware pieces, as well as for being the first to introduce the novel techniques of electrolytic gilding and silver plating in the 19th century.

Filled with decorative charm, these silverware pieces would suit both a traditional and a contemporary interior.
