Description

These beautiful candelabra, made of marble and adorned with elaborate floral ormolu (gilt-bronze) mounts, were made in Paris in the late 19th century by Eugène Bazart.

In fine Louis XV Rococo style, they are in the form of flowering urns: the central body in marble, the trio of elaborate decorative arms in gilt-bronze. The urns are mounted with a pair of masks of bearded male faces in scrolling frames and surmounted with floral bursts. Around the base they are adorned with further acanthus mounts and the square bases upon which they are mounted are likewise cast in gilt-bronze, and signed 'Eug. Bazart, Paris.'

Bazart was a fine Parisian maker, known for the impeccable quality and artistry of his metalwork, as demonstrated by these fine pieces; sumptuous decorative works, they offer a wonderful touch of antique grandeur and style for those looking to add something special to a contemporary living space.
