Jean Despres Rare Candelabra Pair Silver Art Deco circa 1930, Signed



Jean Despres (1889-1980) A rare pair of hammered silvered metal candelabra. Stamped with silversmith JD mark. Signed. Circa 1930. Excellent condition. Measures: 35cm 9cm 14cm Many candelabras is various last years auctions with very high prices for some of them. The pair I propose here is extremely rare. Perhaps unique for special order. No similar piece auctioned in the past ! Jean Desprès was a trained silversmith who participated in the renewal of the silversmith trade by removing excess ornamentation and creating more simple, solid pieces in silver and pewter but mainly in silver-plated metal, easily recognised by their hammered appearance. One can find this simplicity of shape and design in this silver-plated piece presented with its handles forming on body with the object, so typical of the designers style during the 1930's
