Pair of French, 1950s Candlesticks


We found these unsigned ceramic candlesticks in Normandy. The sublime gunmetal black matte glaze and fantastic stylized "surreal Baroque" form point to Georges Jouve as an inspiration (as the French would say, "dans le gou^t de Jouve"). Though a pair of candlesticks is being offered, they are available individually as well.
