$10,250per set

About

Rare Pair of French Neoclassical style gold bronze and brass quiver of arrows 5-light candelabra sconces. Extra-large one-of-a-kind intricately detailed gold bronze shaft in the shape of quiver of arrows hung by a grand neoclassical ribbon motif; five intricately sprouting acanthus leaf arms terminating in detailed bobeches and candle holder cups, two of the candle holders detailed with detailed laurel leaf design and a "gas key"; quiver-shaped stem tapering down adorned with continuous laurel wreath design ending in an acorn finial base. The quiver of arrows and laurel wreaths are symbols of Apollo. There is a painting by Noël Coypel at Cháteau Versailles in the Antechamber room depicting Apollo (god of sun, light, knowledge, music, art, poetry, and archery) receiving his quiver and arrows from Mercury. 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 who 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
