Description

The color and quality of the cut-glass is characteristic of the work produced at the Imperial Glassworks in St. Petersburg.  The bronzes relate to those on a pair of candelabra in the Winter Palace, illustrated in Vues du Palais d'Hiver à Saint-Petersbourg, Paris, 1995 and permit the attribution of the bronzes to Ivan Dipner's workshop in St. Petersburg.  Born in Germany, Dipner was active in St. Petersburg where he supplied bronzes for the Imperial Palaces in collaboration with the leading architects of the day, Rossi, Stasov and Montferrand.  Candelabra of this type appear in 19th century watercolors of Tsarskoe Selo by Luigi Premazzi (see, I. Sautov, Tsarskoe Selo, Paris, 1992, p. 46, pl. 16) and of the Winter Palace by Uchtomsky (see E. Bartenev, Russian Interiors of the XVIII-XIX Centuries, Leningrad, 1977, p. 84).
