A  stunning pair of Empire four-light gilt bronze figural candelabra, of French origin,  dating back to 1810 circa. Extraordinary high-quality casting, chasing, engraving and mercury gilding.

Each flambeau has four curved branches  decorated with floral patterns, ending with palm leaves and wax cups or bobéches are flower-shaped. Candle holders issuing from a torch, held by putti   balancing on a round globe. Both cherubs have a  perfect anatomy, with  curled hair and a spectacular chiseled  plumage wings. The candelabra are mounted on a stepped square base measuring 13 x 13 centimeters .

In overall excellent condition, with the exception of old restorations on a garland, an index finger and a leaf top missing.

They come from a luxury villa at Como Lake..

We have disassembled both works for cleaning  and  each item consists of 38 pieces and a globe  edge   is engraved with monogram M.B, may be initials of  the artisan maker.

Each piece is characterized by  a superb casting, chasing, engraving and mercury gilding and must be made by a great French fondeur-ciseleur of Empire period.
