C1770 Pair of Louis XV French Lacquered Brass Candlesticks

$1,250.00 the ancient pair.


This splendid pair of 18th century brass candlesticks is recently polished and lacquered for easy care. 18th century brass candlesticks were originally lacquered, both clear, as here, and in black, green, blue, red, sometimes painted with flowers. Alternatively, they were covered in gold or silver. A more economical imitation of solid silver could be achieved by tinning the candlesticks. This pair retains its original bobeche. The textured foliate embossing raises them well above the average Louis XV/1774/Louis XVI candlesticks. The pair stands 25 cm tall, and the diameter of each is 11/5 cm.
