Circa 1810 Regency period elegant and stylish pair of Rococo gilt ormolu candlesticks.
Circa 1810 Regency period lovely pair of Rococo ormolu gilt candlesticks with beautiful cast design of flowers and acanthus leaves, and having detachable sconces.
A lovely and functional pair that may once possibly have been used as lamps, and could do so again if desired, as wire could run through the centre hole on the inside under the candle and out under the base, without any alterations being necessary. So it would be completely invisible on the outside. Can be arranged to be wired for you, if required.
These are heavy, at over 2.2 kilos together.
Size-10.25 inches tall by 5 inches wide.
A really lovely pair to use as candlesticks or potential lamp bases, with very attractive patina, and beautiful quality. They are in very good condition, and will be striking statement pieces for any table.
