|Included here is a monumental pair of antique table sconces or candelabra, in the neoclassical French Empire style, fashioned from stained mahogany with silverplated mounts and with silvered metal (likely solid brass) figures and candle arms. They feature three-dimensional, semi-nude female figures decorated with garlands, holding four graceful and long candlearms ending in candle cups decorated with flower petals. Silvered metal urn finials in the ancient Greco-Roman style decorate the tops of each. The rear panel of each is unfinished and thus these were likely designed to sit upon a mantle, pier table or sideboard with the rear touching the wall. We have found no hallmarks and believe the pair are of continental origin and likely date from the late nineteenth to early twentieth century. Each measures 33" high, 16.75" wide and 13.5" deep. Estimated weight of each is 18-24 lbs. Condition of each is very good. There are scratches and nicks, consistent with age, and some very minor losses to the silvered finish on the figures and candle arms. No restoration is recommended. These candelabra reside in our client's gallery on the Upper East Side of Manhattan (New York City) and may be seen in person by appointment.|
