Large Pair of French Empire Period Candelabra, Attributed to Claude Galle

$68,500per set

About

A magnificent large pair of five-light doré bronze and patinated bronze Empire period candelabra, attributed to Claude Galle made in the early 1800s. This pair of candelabra are set on Verde Antico marble base with ormolu mounts held up by gorgeous winged lions. The ormolu arms and bases have been finely cast and hand-chiseled with exceptional detail and meticulous craftsmanship. Each candle holder is being held up by intricately hand-chiseled dragon majestically holding their heads up towards the candles. Between the four arms are three flaming phoenixes upholding the final candlestick. Found on the patinated bronze are beautifully placed acanthus leaves flowing upward to the top of the candles. The ormolu is of the finest quality with the doré bronze exceptionally handcrafted and the patina prodigiously hand-painted on. This pair of candelabra was made in France in the early 1800s and is attributed to the work of the Parisian guilder and modeler Claude Galle. Galle had been one of the main figures at the International Exhibition in Paris in 1819 and is one of the most important casters and gilders of the 18th century and the early 1800's.
