Description

This pair of candelabra was created during the Restauration period, between 1814 and 1830 when the Bourbons were restored to the throne of France. Though the candelabra were produced during that time, the malachite veneer to their plinths is a later addition.

Each candelabrum features an ormolu base modelled with three scrolled feet moulded with acanthus leaves and scallop shells, the base in turn raised atop a triangular shaped malachite plinth. The stem of each is modelled as three fasces, terminating above in the candelabrum head that issues six scrolling light branches moulded with acanthus leaf forms. The centre of the head culminates in a flambeau finial.
