A Lovely Pair of 5 lights French Gilt Silver Candelabras By Tétard Frères
The Pair is done in the Corinthian Style with a gorgeous column rising out of a circular base, lined with laurel leaves
The column is typically Corinthian in style with the square upper part or abacus decorated with rosettes and acanthus scrolls.
The four arms extend through acanthus leaves, while the edges of the five candleholders are decorated with laurel leaves.
This set is in wonderful condition and will add a lovely note to a festive table!
They are not too tall, yet tall enough to convey the perfect ambiance light, while enabling guests to see each other across the table.
They have not been filled at the bottom hence the weight give is the solid silver weight.
They are 18 carat gold coated or Vermeil.
A gorgeous set!
