The fire-gilded surfaces with burnished and matte finish, modelled as one female and one male figure wearing togas, balancing on spheres, one holding a wreath and the other a cornucopia, with S-curved arms and 7 candle cups complete with bob├Ęches.
French, circa 1820

Bring a touch a glamour and good fortune into your home with these candelabra representing Victory and Abundance. For centuries, the laurel wreath has been symbolic of triumph, awarded to Roman Emperors and also Olympic athletes , while the “Horn of Plenty” had a resurgence in France, seen on furniture and objects made for Versailles.

With their original drip-pans, these candelabra are complete, original, and ready-to-place.
