German Empire Period Seven-Piece Silver Candelabra Set

$124,392.48per set


German empire period seven-piece silver candelabra set German, circa 1810 Meaures: Largest: Height 66.5cm, diameter 30cm Smallest: Height 51cm, width 28cm, depth 14cm This composite garniture is the combination of one single candelabrum and three pairs of candelabra. All seven pieces were produced in Germany circa 1810, and it is remarkable that the group should form so cohesive and persuasive a whole. The set is wrought from pure silver and is styled in the manner popular during the Empire period. Each candelabrum is set atop a circular foot and a cylindrical podium, this podium adorned with applied silver classicising figures. Each candelabrum features a shaft set with a foliate capital and base, though only some of the shafts are fluted while others remain smooth. The largest candelabra—a pair and the single—feature Caryatid and Atlantid type figures, from which spring the candelabra branches. The two smaller pairs include the same, superbly scrolled foliate branches as the largest candelabra. Of the two smaller pairs, one pair features four branches per candelabrum while the other pair features three. The candelabra are fully hallmarked, and stamped with maker’s marks for Wilhelm Conrad Hessenberg of Frankfurt and Hans Gottfried Dellevie of Hamburg.
