Each three-light candelabrum in this pair is formed from silvered bronze and features a circular foot, which is fluted and encircled by a laurel wreath. The lower part of the stems is engraved and fluted, and their tops have been modelled to imitate swags of drapery. Each candelabrum has three arms, each supporting wide drip-pans topped by fluted capitals and simple silvered bronze sconces.
Crowning the stem of each piece is a laurel leaf band, which is topped by a flaming classical urn. The urn has a leafy base and wavy frieze, which is decorated with rams' heads, framed by flower garlands.
André Aucoc was a highly skilled and inventive French silversmith who was active in Paris in the late 19th and early 20th Century. During this time, Aucoc was the head of the family business, La Maison Aucoc, which was founded by Casimir Aucoc in 1821. Aucoc had inherited the company from his older brother, Louis, at the turn of the century. The base of each candelabra is signed 'A. Aucoc'.
