Pair of French Bronze Candelabra with Bacchus & Satyr after Clodion, circa 1880

US$7,200per set

About

A most fine pair of two-light candelabra executed in gilt and patinated bronze, they are designs after the models by Michel Clodion featuring the infant Bacchus and the infant satyr, each raising gilded branches with their gilded candlabrum. Bacchus, or Dionysus to the Greeks, has grape leaves on vines with bunches of grapes interwoven in his hair while the Satyr is in motion with acorns and oak leaves twisted around his head. Both stand beside a rocky outcrop. The quality of the casting is self-evident and simply exquisite. Both models have been extensively chiseled, chased and hammered to create a jeweler-grade surface with crisp and intricate details. Measurements: 14 1/4" H x 5 4/8" base diameter x 9 1/8" W (candelabra branches).
