C1760 Splendid Pair Louis XV Silvered Bronze Candlesticks

$1,750.00 the fine pair

This splendid pair of mid-18th century French Louis XV candlesticks is silvered bronze, enriched with some floral engraving. Standing 24 cm tall, they are impressive. The curving, continuously flowing lines give them the lightness and vivacity for which the Louis XV period, that of Madame Pompadour, is so justly remembered. We have the best and largest array of 18th century French candlesticks in the country, and even we are impressed with them. Generally speaking, our selection of fine candlesticks is probably second to none in the country at present, with good silver ones form France, Georgian, England, Biedermeier Vienna, Augsburg, and even a modern Greek sterling Pair! As Joan Sauers tells us In "Ageing Disgracefully"; use candles everywhere! If you can manage it, even carry a candle in front of you on your way to the restaurant. Wise advice in an age when overhead downlighting makes a baby look forty.
