About

A very fine and palatial pair of French 19th century Louis XV style marble and gilt bronze mounted four-light figural candelabra by Henri Vian, (French, 1860-1905). The ovoid marble urn base surmounted with ormolu mounts of Royal Ram heads, flowers and acanthus, crowned with a foliage gilt bronze four-light candelabrum on a square base. (Having previously been fitted for electricity). The ormolu stamped 'HV" on the reverse, Paris, circa 1880-1890. Henri Vian, (1860-1905) was a celebrated Parisian bronzier, specializing in the production of bronzes in the 18th century style and interior ornamentation of great quality. His output was concerned principally with the production of light-fixtures but also included other bronze items. Such was the quality of his work that his casting and gilding can often be mistaken for earlier 18th century works of art. As a bronze-caster active in the second half of the 19th century, He was known to produced articles of the highest quality. Measures: Height 30 3/4 inches (78 cm) Width 17 inches (43 cm) Depth 16 inches (40.5 cm).
