18th Century Italian Wood Candelabra of Order of the Sacred Heart


Description: Front size 18th century Italian wood candelabra of order of the sacred heart . Feet with a lion's paw in gilded wood. The base is carved with gilded wood leaf motif. Body is painted with lacquer colored heavenly with coat of arms of the order of the sacred heart carved with a Latin cross engraved inside. Rear side No relevant manufacture What we have understand of the history of this antiques: This is a very rare antique object. It was created for a church belonging to the order of the sacred heart of Jesus, otherwise it would not have carried the coat of arms. The fact that the object has a well-finished front and a back without carvings and ornaments makes us understand that the destination church was poor and that the object was destined for intangible daily use. Surely it was a ceremonial candelabra used on the altar. The front was aimed at the faithful and the back was aimed at the priest and then hidden from the crowd. Unfortunately, as often happened in Italy of 20th century for the candelabras, also this was transformed into a table lamp. Despite everything remains a unique antique. Status: Good, some crack and plaster mark on the legs. The upper part, if turned, moves slightly. It can be handled without problems. Advice for architects and interior designers: In our opinion, this antique object needs a white or "green Empire" background to bring out the gilding of wood and the heavenly lacquer. Excellent standing on a console with dark marble. Good results can also be obtained with the studied lighting. Before shipment: Minor adjustments and wax polishing.
