A pair of fine quality French late 19th century ormolu and bronze candelabra in the manner of Claude Michael Clodion (1738-1814) - ADDITIONAL IMAGES CAN BE VIEWED BELOW:
This superb pair of candelabra each consists of a fine patinated bronze Bacchanalian putto holding twin ormolu vine and grape branches with leaf decorated candle holders to the top, each putto resting on a naturalistic tree trunk.
These leading down to circular ormolu reeded bases with harebell decoration supported on square rouge marble moulded plinths and terminating with four circular ormolu feet.
