Decorative Pair Of Antique French Silver Rocaille Candlesticks


Decorative Pair Of Antique French Silver Rocaille Style Candle Sticks

Decorated in the exhuberant Rocaille Style, this pair showcases tall shaped columns decorated with scrolls and acanthus chutes, while the pedestal is shell shaped with acanthus leaves scrolls overlapping.
This pair is in Cast Silver and not filled. Hence the weight given is pure silver.

They may have had removable sconces but the shape does not forcibly show that. However we are presenting them with glass sconces.
A lovely addition to a table for a more stately dinner!

The Hallmark is Minerva 1st title (950/1000) for Paris 1838/1919

We could not find the Makers Mark, but have not given up yet!
The Rocaille design makes it sometimes a little harder to spot…
