"Pair Of Candelabras With Bacchantes - Empire Period"
Pair of candelabras with three candle arms. 
Ormolu and patinated bronze. 
Empire period, early 19th century. 

H. 40 - l. 23,5 cm

These candelabras represent a woman holding two candle arms in the shape of cornucopias decorated with plant friezes. Their long dress twirling on their bare feet indicates that they are dancing and gives a beautiful vivacity to the model. Their heads, with hair pulled up in braids on the top of the skull, support another binnacle decorated with a laurel frieze. 
The pedestal has gilded bronze applications representing another dancer as well as the thyrse, a stick topped with a pine cone around which ivy is wrapped.
These candelabras, with the symbols of the cornucopia, the dance and the thyrse, present the attributes of Bacchus and his retinue.
