A Lovely Pair Of Louis XVI Style Ormolu and White Marble Two lights Candlesticks.
These ‘Bout de Table’ or End of Table Candlesticks are set in chiseled and gilded bronze, with white marble bases.
The arms of lights are decorated with laurel leaves and linked by a central delicately twisted pillar resting on a crown of laurel leaves.
The finial is in the shape of a pine cone resting on a crown of acanthus leaves.
The central pillar is flanked by four delicate side pillars ending in acanthus leaves bases.
The white marble base is in excellent shape and stands on small spinning top ormolu feet.
The candlesticks are a perfect addition on a mantel or a sideboard.
These are nearly identical to the previous pair with very slight variation in height.
France, Circa 1870
