The illustration of the catalogue is accurate. Good overall condition despite the inevitable scratches and marks due to age and use. A minute casting fault on an arm of light. The gilding and the chasing are very nice. Exquisite and very rare model. Ready to display.

Cette paire de candélabres illustre parfaitement la vigueur du style rocaille avec ses bras ajourés et tournoyants. Un candélabre d'un modele similaire mais à cinq branches est illustré dans l'Encyclopédie du Luminaire, vol. 2, T. 5, pl. 165.


Une paire de candélabres à trois branches identiques aux nôtres appartenait à la galerie Michel Meyer lors de la IXe Biennale des Antiquaires de Paris.
