SKU: 081-0354

Pair of candelabra made of fire-gilt and burnished bronze. The female figures are depicted in ancient dress and carry cornucopias that develop into projecting candelabra and end in a spiralling serpent around the central thyrsos staff with pine cones. This central motif is surrounded by three candlesticks each with vine leaf and grape decoration and a cock's head. The figures stand on round pedestals with fire-gilded foliate borders and square bases of pink granite with black inclusions.
