Monumental Pair of Neoclassical Candelabra Lamps, France, 1880

$9,900per set

About

An important elaborate pair of extra-large Neoclassical bronze 5-Light candelabra lamps converted to electric. Classical Roman fluted column shaft surmounted by a detailed gilt bronze bobache sprouting flower bud capital surrounded by four gilt bronze branches each with a foilage decorated bobaches sprouting flower bud capitals, supported on a surmounting an intricately carved foilage pedestal resting on a circular base. Originally candelabras converted to electricity. Neoclassical design was inspired by the discovery of ancient Pompeii, returning Greco-Roman style in furniture and architecture. Louis XVI's reign began in 1774 and his queen Marie-Antoinette was a lover of the arts and had much influence over the style. This 18th century design is timeless and elegant, but understated; it will compliment an antique setting, or adds exuberant contrasting highlights to modern and contemporary interior settings.
