Two Rococo Style Gilt and Silvered Metal Girandoles

About

These exquisite girandoles are designed in a graceful Rococo style. This style was fashionable in France in the 18th century, during the reign of Louis XV (1715-1774). Derived from the French word ‘rocaille’ (rock or shell), ‘Rococo’ is characterised by its use of classical seashell motifs, curves, counter-curves, and scrolling foliage. It is a highly ornamental style. The girandoles are crafted from silvered metal, parts of which are gilt. Each item features a shaped oval mirror, which is fitted with a pair of three-light candelabra. These candelabra spring from shaped back-plates, decorated with openwork scrolling foliage. The lights' leafy branches curve upwards to terminate in gadrooned and foliate urn-shaped capitals, which hold white candle-tubes. The light created by the candelabra will be reflected in the girandoles’ mirrored backs, illuminating the pair and the room they are placed in.
