"Pair Of Candlesticks, Candlesticks In Chiseled And Gilded Bronze, Russian Neo Classical Work Late 18th"
Pair of candlesticks, chiseled and gilded bronze candlesticks in Louis XVI style with very rich decoration of women draped in the antique style resting on a marble and gilt bronze plinth, topped with an Ionic column capital supporting a fruit basket. Late 18th century Russian or Swedish neoclassical work (1790s). In the French style repository, it would be a production from the Louis XVI or Directoire period. Very good quality of carving and gilding, worthy of the fine production of Thomire at the same time. Model inspired by the drawings of Jean Demosthène Dugourc, our torches are a beautiful illustration of the spread of French neoclassical taste throughout Europe, with local adaptations. They could have been brought back to France after a trip on the Grand Tour or by a Russian emigrant fleeing the Bolshevik Revolution. Beautiful model, very original. superb mercury gilding very well preserved, a slit in a marble base. The bobeches are missing. height 29.5cm diameter 10.5cm
