A Pair of 19th Century French Bronze Candlesticks
In the 18th and 19th century every house had a fireplace, and therefore a mantlepiece, and in the grander houses, several mantlepieces. These would be decorated with all manner of things from clocks, candlesticks, photograph frames and pottery and brass ornaments.
A large pair of French candlesticks, bronze with a floral base and semi readed column. This type of candlestick would have graced the best of establishments.
The condition is good with a pleasaant patina.
