A Pair of Neoclassical Crystal and Ormolu Girandoles
A refined and rare pair of Neoclassical Continental gilt or ormolu bronze and mixed crystal table girandoles, a name derived from the Italian term of the sixteenth century girandola meaning an elaborate type of candleabrum with pendants of cut glass that formed a pyramid of light from nearby lighting device. The pair with marble bases and cobalt blue glass inner globe supports, circa 1780-1800, probably Russian. Superior condition with exuberant colors. A rare offering!
