Large Pair of French Restauration Ormolu and Patinated Bronze Candelabra, Horses

About

A large and fine pair of French restauration ormolu and patinated bronze four-light candelabra, with Marly Horses, after Guillaume Coustou, circa 1820. Very fine, elegant and chic. This pair can be also turned into lamps. Measures: 30" high x 9.5" wide x 7" deep. Good condition, ready to place. No damages noted. Modeled after the large marble sculptures representing wild horses restrained by grooms, commissioned in 1739 by King Louis XV from the sculptor, Guillaume Coustou, for the Chateau of Marly (a favorite royal retreat). The sculptures were installed at the horse pond in the gardens of the chateau in 1745. The Chateau of Marly was destroyed following the French Revolution, but the statues, considered masterpieces of French sculpture, were spared this fate. On the orders of the painter Davide, the statues were moved to the Place de la Concorde at the bottom of the Champs-Elysees.
