"Toilet Candle Holders (pair Of) Directoire Painted Sheet"Despite many splinters to paint, these small candlesticks remain charming and finally quite rare in their category! I present them in their state of discovery. They are mounted on copper leaf, their base has a sheet of black lacquered metal and weighted.
Solid color of the background in shades of ocher, friezes of golden and red flowers on a black background for the barrel. The perimeter of the base has a frieze of leaves and stylized golden flowers on a black background.
Beautiful country decorations, hand-painted and identical on each of the candlesticks, represent farm scenes animated by peasants working at the foot of a village near grazing cows. Many splinters to paint, more important on one of them; (as you can see from the pictures); which also has an old tin solder. The two original bobeches are also matched in color. Two punches under the base unidentified.
Note: despite the noted accidents, these objects remain attractive. Good stability, they can serve a very long time ... A small price (not negotiable) but with the delivery offered for metropolitan France. I can provide you with other photos if you wish.
