Pair of 19th Century French Empire Bronze and Ormolu Candelabra

About

Incredible and rare pair of empire style candelabra of gilt and patinated bronze, central column is made of white marble. Place for six candles in the candelabra. Very well crafted and intricately detailed. Three cherubs are surrounded by a candlebra stand around the bottom. The empire style (French pronunciation: ?[?~.pi??], style Empire) is an early 19th century design movement in architecture, furniture, other decorative arts, and the visual arts, representing the second phase of neoclassicism. It flourished between 1800 and 1815 during the consulate and the first French empire periods, although its life span lasted until the late 1820s (or more in some countries). From France it spread into much of Europe and the United States. The style originated in and takes its name from the rule of the emperor Napoleon I in the first French empire, when it was intended to idealize Napoleon's leadership and the French state. The style corresponds in that intent to the Biedermeier style in the German-speaking lands, Federal style in the United States, and the Regency style in Britain. The previous style in France was called Louis XVI style.
