Pair of very large French brass candelabra in the Gothic Revival style
French, early 20th Century
Height 327.5cm, diameter 115cm
The truly exceptional, and monumentally large, candelabra in this pair are crafted from brass in the Gothic Revival style. Each candelabrum features 24 lights arranged over two tiers: 8 lights above and 24 below, each light springing from a pierced brass band. The head of each candelabrum is surmounted by a series of scrolled brackets, which merge to support a single candle finial. Each candelabrum is supported by a column comprised of eight bars, each adorned with scrolling brackets. The pierced base of each is topped with a gallery that encompasses the central column. The works are truly exceptional pieces of twentieth century French design.
