Object description :

"Pair Of Spades Candles, Mounted In Lamps. Boulle Marquetry. Late Seventeenth, Early Eighteenth"
Important pair of candle spades, mounted in lamps with richly chiselled decoration, known as marquetry of boulle, brass openwork of lambrequins and stylized blazons with trimmings.
The barrel, of pinched shape, rests on a tripod-shaped base ending in spherical balls.
Period late seventeenth, early eighteenth
Perfect condition
These spades candles are witnesses of an extraordinary work, specific to Boulle marquetry, which was mainly worked on copper or brass, at that time. Moreover, the complexity of the openwork decoration, richly voluted, brings to this pair of candle pique, an out of the ordinary interest.
They are mounted in lamps, but the electrical installation is removable, allowing to enjoy these objects both spades candles and lamps.
