Pair of 18th Century Italian Candlesticks with Chalcedony and Barite Crystals

About the Item

A pair of 18th century Italian candlesticks adorned with chalcedony rosettes with deposits of pyrite and golden barite crystals tapering down the matrix. Barite crystals are a very rare and valuable natural specimen. They are museum specimens and held by museums and private collectors. The pair is put together by Jean O'Reilly Barlow, the artist and creative director of Interi. The date of manufacture reflects when she created the pieces and the period shows that the pair of Italian candlesticks are originally 18th century. Combined with the natural elements, both create a pair made up of historical importance and contemporary interpretations.
